The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program helps families in the United States afford food.

How to apply:

Call the SNAP Hotline at 1-888-231- SNAP (7627) – this hotline is a tool for members of our service area to provide them with convenience, privacy, and support when looking to access federal food assistance (SNAP/Food Stamps).

The Hotline helps clients with completing SNAP applications and recertification. In 15-20 minutes, helpline agents assist callers with completing the 4-page application for SNAP, and give simple instructions on how to follow through. Agents will then mail a packet to the client containing the application for their signature and instructions for submitting. A pre-addressed envelope to the DHS office in the appropriate county will be included.

Additionally, the hotline can be used to help clients find or navigate resources for area food pantries and free meal providers for those in immediate need
