SNAP (Food Stamp) Outreach

SNAP

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps) serves as a front-line defense against hunger, helping families make ends meet.  It is the largest nutrition assistance program administered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).  The goal of the program is “to alleviate hunger and malnutrition… by increasing food purchasing power for all eligible households who apply for participation.” Research shows that participating in SNAP plays a critical role not only in alleviating food insecurity, but also in improving dietary intake and health.

 

Staff from the Community Food Bank of NJ will pre-screen for Food Stamp eligibility and assist with online applications at the Millville Public Library, 210 Buck Street, Millville, on Thursday, March 9, 2017, April 13, 2017, and May 11, 2017 from 10:00am to 12:30pm

 

The following documents are necessary to apply: Identification (for everyone in the household) • Social Security Numbers (for everyone in the household ) • Utility Bills (gas, electric, oil, water, and telephone) • Rent Receipt /Agreement or Mortgage Statements and/or Tax Bill. • Proof of Income (for everyone on the household) • Medical Expenses – only if you are 60 and older and/or disabled • Children’s Day Care expenses

 

If you already receive Food Stamps, the Food Bank’s staff cannot change the amount you already receive. If you are approved for food stamp benefits, food pantries, and food distribution, resources will continue to be provided for you.
