It administers 15 domestic food assistance programs (including the food stamp program, child nutrition programs [e.g., school feeding programs], and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children [WIC]). FNS works in partnership with the states and reimburses most of the administrative costs the states incur for carrying out local program administration.[1]
