SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and formerly the Food Stamp program) is a Federal nutrition program.
- We encourage households to apply for SNAP as a way to keep healthy food on the table during temporary or longer term food insecurity.
- People receive a debit card, and can use their monthly benefits at local grocery stores, farmers markets, the Northside COOP, the UC Market, and many other area businesses.
- SNAP strengthens our community by keeping our neighbors nourished, and through spending federal dollars in our local economy.
- The average SNAP benefit is $125 per person.
- You can save SNAP benefits on your card for up to 12 months.
