Westmoreland County Food Bank’s SNAP Application Assistance Program

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the federal program, formerly known as Food Stamps, that helps low income individuals to purchase nutritious food, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains at their local grocery store. This program can help stretch your grocery budget, which may already be overextended with the cost of healthcare and home heating constantly on the rise. If determined eligible for the program, SNAP provides a monthly allotment of money to use towards food purchases. The Westmoreland County Food Bank can help an individual to complete a SNAP application and then submits the application to the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services to determine program eligibility. Applications can be completed easily via a phone conversation, in as little as fifteen minutes. If you would like to apply for SNAP or have questions about the program, please contact Lauren Hill, SNAP Outreach Coordinator at 1-800-462-2080 extension 28 for more details.

For more information on this and other programs that the Westmoreland County Food Bank offers, please call 1-800-462-2080 or visit our website at www.westmorelandfoodbank.org.
