As families face higher prices for groceries and other essential goods, communities around the state are experiencing a profound hunger crisis. Every day, people in our community struggle to get enough to eat. They confront impossible choices between paying rent, purchasing medicine, and putting food on the table. For many of these families, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) can be the difference between having food and going hungry.

The Nutrition Outreach and Education Program (NOEP) can tell you if you may be eligible for SNAP and help you complete and submit an application. These services are free and confidential. If you’re struggling with hunger, please contact your local NOEP coordinator today.

If you or someone you know needs help buying food, SNAP may be able to help. SNAP helps low-income families, seniors, students, people with disabilities, veterans and others stretch their grocery budget and buy the food they need to stay healthy. It provides monthly benefits on a debit card to spend at local grocery stores, farmers' markets, and approved online retailers.
