SNAP (Food Stamp) Outreach

Through our SNAP Outreach Program we are helping individuals and families get food assistance via food stamps (currently known as SNAP – Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program). Our goal is to partner with community agencies to be able to reach out to those in need and help them fill out the application and offer follow-up as needed.
