SNAP is the nation’s first line of defense against hunger. This federal program helps Americans with low incomes put food on the table and lift themselves out of poverty. More than half of SNAP recipients are children.
Second Harvest offers outreach and application assistance for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Our Benefits Outreach Counselor explains benefits, provides pre-screening to people who may qualify, and helps people fill out the application. In FY20, Second Harvest helped submit 3,224 SNAP applications.
You can get SNAP information and application assistance at our Emergency Food Box sites, Mobile Pantries, and Partner Agencies, or you can contact our Benefits Outreach Counselor by email or at (615) 310-0752.
