Apicha Community Health Center offers more than quality primary care, we offer an array of other services needed by our communities, such as assistance with SNAP Benefits.
You no longer must choose between feeding your family and taking care of your other responsibilities, because that is something no one should be forced to choose between.
What is SNAP?
SNAP stands for the “Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program,” formerly known as food stamps. It is a program that offers nutrition assistance to over a million eligible, low-income New Yorkers including families, the elderly, and the disabled. A monthly supplement is provided to those who need assistance affording food and groceries.
The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) works with state agencies, nutrition educators, and neighborhood and faith-based organizations to make sure that those eligible can get the information they need to decide to apply for the program and get benefits.
