“I knew it would be hard, but I didn’t know it would be THIS hard.”
How often have we said this in the middle of a difficult time? The winter brings with it harsh circumstances especially for those with food insecurity who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
Did you know that in addition to supplying food to 400 agencies state wide, the NH Food Bank offers SNAP/Food Stamps application assistance through their dedicated phone line so that people don’t have to navigate the application alone?
For those who may be eligible, this is great news. SNAP Outreach is just one of the many ways that the NH Food Bank supports New Hampshire’s most vulnerable populations year-round.
Sadly, one in five individuals eligible for Food Stamps are not utilizing the program because of myths they believe about eligibility, which is why SNAP education is so essential. If you know someone who would like more information about SNAP benefits, please have them call the SNAP Outreach line at 603- 669-9725 x 124. They are here to help end hunger – that’s what they do.
