SNAP Access Programs
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), is a federal program that provides nutrition benefits to low-income individuals and families that are used at stores to purchase food. The program is administered by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) through its nationwide network of FNS field offices. Local FNS field offices are responsible for the licensing and monitoring of retail food stores participating in SNAP.
SNAP provides nutrition benefits to supplement the food budget of needy families and individuals so they can purchase healthy food and move towards self-sufficiency. The City of New York can provide Emergency Food Bennifits to those who qualify.
