If you need help buying healthy food for your family, you may be eligible for SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly called Food Stamps. SNAP allows you to buy healthy food for your family from grocery stores, corner stores and even some farmers' markets.
Anyone can apply for SNAP. The amount of money you receive depends on your income. There is an eligibility worker at CIFC who can help you see if you're eligible.
Do I qualify for SNAP?
