Food Assistance Programs - COVID-19 UPDATE

Food Assistance Programs - COVID-19 UPDATE

 

Give with Your Whole Heart
We often forget that it’s not those who normally utilize local, state and federal programs for food assistance who need it now. Those in need are far-reaching - more than we ever could or would have imagined.


Think of the friends who may earn six-figures and enjoy life so much, they save nothing - but, boy, they live in the lap of luxury day-in and day-out. Until…

 

Job losses have hit more Americans than any of us can believe - this virus has not discriminated. We’re all susceptible to the impacts of the disease, whether we’re inflicted physically or economically. If you know someone with whom you can share this information, please do - there’s no stigma attached to need. Let’s do everything we can to help our fellow Americans during these incredibly trying times for all.

 

 

FOOD ASSISTANCE 

 

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), more commonly known as food stamps, ensures that Americans receive the food they need, especially if they are newly unemployed. Congress has invested in SNAP in the last three bills to help Americans put food on the table during this crisis.

*To apply for SNAP, contact your state SNAP office or the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food & Nutrition Services regional offices near you. 

 

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

  • Local Food Banks NC/SCThe Committee on House Agriculture is broken down by regions - NC & SC are both located in the southeast region. The regional offices, including ours (SERO) can be found here. 
  • Fact Sheet and FAQs on SNAP programs. 
  • The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women Infants and Children (WIC) provides access to nutritious foods to low-income pregnant women or mothers. To see if you are eligible for WIC benefits by using WIC’s pre-screening tool, click here.

  • For more information about federal food assistance programs, visit the US Department of Agriculture’s Coronavirus Nutrition Response. 

 

FOOD BANKS 

  • The federal government has now secured $850 million in emergency funding for The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). This funding is in place to help food banks face increased utilization, as well as meeting the unprecedented demand in countless communities across the country due to the coronavirus. The USDA Food & Nutrition Service provides a list of state contacts; click here for yours. You can also visit FeedingAmerica.com to find a local food bank near you. 
  • To find food assistance near you, call the USDA National Hunger Hotline 1-866-3-HUNGRY/1- 877-8-HAMBRE
