Families and individuals who seek food aid from Partner Agencies of Tarrant Area Food Bank are often eligible for the national Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the Food Stamp Program. SNAP is a nutrition assistance program that helps low-income and temporarily unemployed people purchase nutritious foods.

Our social services outreach staff are available to visit our Partner Agencies and other community sites to ensure that anyone who is eligible for SNAP is aware of the program and has the opportunity to apply for nutrition benefits.

The outreach staff also help eligible families apply for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, Medicaid and/or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and, upon request, delivers completed applications to the appropriate offices of the Health and Human Services Commission.  For more information, see Applying for SNAP, Health and Other Aid.

Benefit programs such as SNAP have kept millions from falling into poverty, according to U.S. Census Bureau Supplemental Poverty Measure.
