SNAP Assistance

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), once known as food stamps, helps individuals and families make ends meet. Depending on income guidelines, SNAP recipients are allocated a specific dollar amount loaded onto a debit card, which gives you the freedom to choose what you eat.

All Faiths Food Bank’s SNAP team provides application assistance to those interested in applying for benefits. We can help determine your eligibility, go through the application with you at a convenient and safe location, submit your documentation to social services, and let you know what to expect during the process moving forward.
