To the Editor,
You Work Hard... Now Let Food Stamps Work for You!
Have you recently become unemployed? If so, you may be eligible for food stamp benefits. Currently, the Food Stamp Program help to put food on the table for over 2.4 million New Yorkers each month, including households that are experiencing unemployment. Only 40 percent of New Yorkers who are eligible actually access the program, there are many more households that could benefit from food stamps.
Food stamps can help ensure that you and your family have the ability to buy the nutritious foods needed to stay strong and healthy, while navigating through a very difficult time. Recent changes in the program make it even easier for households to apply, and more families are eligible to apply due to increases in the income guidelines. Benefits are accessed just like a debit card which makes the Food Stamp program confidential and easy to use.
For more information about the Food Stamp Program, or for a free and confidential prescreening to find out if you may be eligible, please contact the Nutrition Outreach and Education Program (NOEP), we are here to help.
