Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Outreach Program
What is SNAP
SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) is a nutrition assistance program that helps eligible low-income individuals and families be able to supplement their food 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 the benefits. The SNAP Outreach program serves to educate the community about SNAP, so they can understand the eligibility factors, application process and requirements needed.
Our goal is to educate and inform individuals and families about the purpose, use and benefits of SNAP. We also assist with SNAP screening, applications and post-application follow-up.
To learn more about the SNAP program or to schedule an appointment to help you with your application contact our SNAP Outreach Coordinator or the Arcade Main Office.
