SNAP stands for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and provides food benefits for adults or families with a low income.
SNAP puts benefits on an electronic card like a debit card. It can then be used to buy groceries in regular grocery stores.
You get SNAP benefits on your card once a month and can use them usually up to a year after they’ve been loaded.
You should know that you can’t buy tobacco, alcohol, or things that aren’t food or drink with SNAP. You also have to agree to look for a job or stay in your job.
We can help eligible families with children age 3 and younger, adoptive parents, biological fathers of unborn children, and pregnant woman apply for SNAP.
Depending on your family size, you could get hundreds of dollars a month for groceries.

WIC is a food assistance program for low income women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or postpartum. WIC–which stands for Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Woman, Infants, and Children–can also help you buy food for your baby or young children.
In fact, WIC serves 53% of babies born in America! Pregnant women who receive WIC benefits get supplemental food for themselves during their pregnancy and after their baby is born for up to a year.
Some examples of food that WIC provides are fruit, vegetables, eggs, dairy, and bread.
Babies can get food like infant cereal, baby food, and formula through WIC.
The short-term food assistance program also provides health and nutritional information to keep pregnant women and babies healthy.
