FIND OUT IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR HELP WITH FOOD COSTS
If you or your family is having a hard time affording groceries, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in Virginia may be able to help. Formerly known as “food stamps,” these benefits help people stretch their food budgets and put healthy foods on the table. We’re committed to helping food insecure Virginia families, many with children, handicapped or elderly household members, connect with the resources they need. The first step is finding out if you’re eligible for SNAP benefits, and it only takes 2 minutes! Try our free calculator below.
Note: The SNAP calculator is a project of Virginia Hunger Solutions and Virginia Poverty Law Center (with help from the SNAP prescreener project), and is not affiliated with the Virginia Department of Social Services. This is not an application. See below for details about how to apply for SNAP.
