Are you struggling to provide for your family? SNAP can help! The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program helps put food on the table for some 31 million people per month. It provides low-income households with monthly electronic benefits they can use like cash at most grocery stores. This is the same program formerly known as food stamps.

Hunger is not isolated to one event, one day or one season. Hunger does not discriminate by race, faith or age; it exists throughout our community, affecting people of all types: employed and unemployed, men, women and children, families and singles.
