Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Outreach

Senior Lady and Young BoyIt is important for struggling seniors, working families and others to know about every possible nutrition assistance opportunity. Unfortunately, many aren’t always aware of all their options, which is why we operate the SNAP Outreach program.

Our goal

To inform and educate about funded federal SNAP assistance (formerly Food Stamps) that goes unclaimed every year because people are unaware of their eligibility or because they have difficulty with the application process.

How SNAP Outreach works

SNAP Outreach ImpactWe work with organizations in the community to raise awareness about the availability of SNAP benefits, including providing information for distribution to clients; assisting with SNAP screening and SNAP applications (with bilingual assistance); and post-application follow-up with counties.
