Get Help for the Months Ahead

Sometimes it can take a while to get back on your feet.

SNAP/ Food and Nutrition Services assistance (formerly Food Stamps), may be able to help you buy food and free up resources for other expenses, such as utilities and medicine.


To receive SNAP/FNS assistance, households must meet income limits. You may be able to get assistance even if you own a home, car, land, property, or have a retirement plan or money in the bank.

Second Harvest team members can help you with the application process over the phone. To receive help, submit your contact information by clicking the link below. Someone from our SNAP/FNS Outreach Team will contact you within 24 hours (Monday-Friday) from this number: 336.422.7758.
