Need assistance applying for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)?
FeedMore WNY can connect you to your county NOEP (Nutrition Outreach & Education Program) Coordinator who will assist you in applying for SNAP benefits. The program provided by Hunger Solutions New York offers free, confidential, one-on-one services that help hungry New Yorkers get nutrition assistance. NOEP Coordinators help applicants gather documentation for, fill out, and send in the SNAP application.
SNAP offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families and provides economic benefits to communities. SNAP is the largest program in the domestic hunger safety net. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) works with state agencies, nutrition educators, and neighborhood and faith-based organizations to ensure that those eligible for nutrition assistance can make informed decisions about applying for the program and access benefits. FNS also works with state partners and the retail community to improve program administration and ensure program integrity.
