A More Thriving Kansas

Kansans are more likely to thrive when our state invests in families through strong safety net programs.

Kansas Appleseed advocates for building a thriving Kansas by promoting year-round access to SNAP food assistance and expanding Child Nutrition Programs.

Accessing SNAP benefits shouldn’t be an uphill battle for Kansas families. SNAP is an effective solution in the fight against hunger, and when our state limits food assistance programs, working-class families are negatively impacted.

Kansas Appleseed works with community partners to raise awareness about child nutrition programs. We aim to ensure that future generations of Kansans do not feel the burden of hunger.

Hunger is a policy choice.
