We guide families in need through the process of applying for food stamps.
SNAP is a nutrition program and not welfare. It is a federal entitlement program. This means anyone who is determined eligible by the state, will receive benefits. You will not be taking away benefits from someone else if you apply nor will it affect any other government program’s status.
SNAP, the supplemental nutrition assistance program, formerly known as food stamps, is a federally funded nutrition program that helps approved individuals buy healthy food and stretch your budget. Benefits can be used to purchase food at grocery stores, convenience stores, and some farmer’s markets.
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) oversees SNAP at the federal level. Overall, eligibility is determined by the local Illinois Department of Human Services & Missouri’s Department of Social Services offices.
