A message from Human Services Commissioner Johnson: Fighting Lead with Nutrition

Dear Friends & Colleagues:

The NJ Department of Human Services’ Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and SNAP-Education Program help families buy nutritious foods and learn about healthy eating and active living.

These fact sheets can help New Jerseyans learn about the importance of nutrition in fighting lead and encourage eligible families to sign up for SNAP. SNAP can help families buy foods high in iron, vitamin C and calcium, which can help combat lead being absorb in the body.

To apply for NJSNAP online, visit njhelps.org.

Thank you,
Carole Johnson
NJ Human Services Commissioner
