“If someone gets food stamps, that’s one less thing to worry about.”

December 8, 2009 § Leave a comment

Have you seen the news coverage lately about Food Stamps (now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP)? Severe backlog of SNAP applications at the Texas Department of Health and Human Services is stirring up a lot of discussion in our community: How can we [our community] get food assistance to hungry Texans quickly and efficiently? How can we reduce food insecurity in Texas, especially among children?

We’re doing our part to help our clients apply for SNAP by educating them and facilitating the application process. Watch this video:

Know someone who needs help applying for SNAP? Call Alex Cruz at 512-684-2115 or email acruz@austinfoodbank.org.
