SNAP - Food Stamp Outreach

(Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program)

SNAP

SNAP, the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (formerly known as Food Stamps), alleviates hunger and improves nutrition by increasing the food-purchasing power of low-income households, enabling them to get a more nutritious diet by preparing food at home.

The Food Bank provides information to Westchester residents about SNAP and has a full-time coordinator who makes home visits to seniors and the disabled to assist them in the screening and application process.
For seniors and the disabled who may already be overwhelmed by their circumstances, the assistance provided by the Food Bank makes it possible for them to preserve their dignity and independence.

Besides helping to extend food dollars for SNAP beneficiaries, the program has additional benefits. In places where SNAP enrollment has increased, it has become a means of local economic growth, bringing millions of dollars each year into the local economy. The money helps to sustain communities, grocery stores and local food retailers.
