  1. Hurricane Irma – Food Replacement Benefits for SNAP Recipients

SNAP Assistance

snapWhat is SNAP?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly Food Stamps) is a nutrition assistance program that helps low-income families and individuals purchase nutritious, healthy food.  SNAP benefits are funded with federal dollars.  When everyone who is eligible for the program receives SNAP, state and local economies also benefit.

Benefits of SNAP

  • SNAP helps families become financially stable and make the transition to self-sufficiency, getting them through the tough times.
  • Feeding children is a priority for SNAP. Out of every $4 in benefits, $3 goes to families with children.
  • The Forsyth Farmers’ Market offers a match on SNAP benefits used for food purchases. Spend $1 and get $2 worth of food, up to a total purchase of $30.

How to Apply for SNAP?

You can apply on your own or get help. Options are:

  • Get assistance at a SNAP community partner agency
  • Visit your local Department of Family and Children Services office to fill out a paper application.
