GBFB offers assistance with applications for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. SNAP benefits are put on an electronic card that is used like an ATM or bank card, and can be used at most supermarkets, convenience stores, and some farmers’ markets.
Who is eligible? SNAP is for everyone—families, seniors, disabled, homeless, unemployed, employed, veterans, and active military. If you are within the income limits, you may be eligible.
