SNAP Benefits Info & Assistance

We offer SNAP application help, answer questions, and more.

We employ staff members whose primary purpose at work is to inform current and potential clients about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program and offer assistance signing up for the program so every family can have access to food they need.

SNAP is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program that can help you put food on the table. SNAP, formerly known as food stamps, is a monthly allocation of dollars for individuals and families who need help getting enough food. Benefits are distributed to recipients each month on an EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card, which works like a debit card. SNAP benefits can be used to purchase food at grocery stores, convenience stores, and some farmer’s markets and co-op food programs.
