What is SNAP

SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) is a nutrition assistance program that helps eligible low-income individuals and families to help them get the food they need. SNAP is a supplement program meaning it is not meant to meet all of one’s food budget needs.

Why is this important

It is important that families and individuals understand how and where to access programs like SNAP so they can make informed decisions about applying and accessing food resources that are potentially available to them. The SNAP Outreach program serves to educate the community about SNAP, so they can understand what the eligibility factors are, how the application process works and what requirements are needed.

Our Goal

Our goal is to educate and inform individuals and families about the purpose, use and benefits of SNAP. The program offers assistance with SNAP screening, applications and post-application follow-up to make the application process less difficult.
