I need help with food because I don’t have nothing. Please help me.

A) If you are food deprived you may qualify to get Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program “SNAP” benefits. You must apply in the state in which you currently live and you must meet certain requirements, including resource and income. Your household must meet certain requirements to be eligible for SNAP and receive benefits. If your state agency determines that you are eligible to receive SNAP benefits, you will receive benefits back to the date you submitted your application.

The information provided in the table below applies to households in the 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia that apply for SNAP between Oct. 1, 2021, through Sept. 30, 2022.
