Get Help for the Months Ahead

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


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


To receive 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.



Help for Families With Young Children and Infants


The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) provides food, health care referrals, and nutrition education for eligible pregnant, breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding postpartum women, as well as infants and children up to age five.

Summer Meals

Free Summer Meal  for Children and Teens 


Making up for the meals your kids are able to get at low or no cost during the school can be a challenge. Free summer meals are available for children (age 18 and under) when school is out.
