Find Out How to Feed Your Family on a Budget
With the rising cost of food, feeding a family on a budget isn’t easy, but there are resources that can help.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), more commonly known as food stamps, provides eligible families with help purchasing food. Find out if you’re eligible and apply for the SNAP program. If you’re eligible, you’ll receive an electronic benefits card, pre-loaded with your benefits, that you can use like a credit or debit card at the store.
Many states also run food banks where you can get food for your family. Check your state’s website to see what is available in your community and to find out if you need to make an appointment to visit the food bank.
