SNAP for Older Adults

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides nutrition help to low-income individuals and families. You can use SNAP dollars to buy fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, fish and poultry, dairy, packaged foods and other items. SNAP dollars are loaded into an ACCESS card each month, which can be used like a DEBIT card. However, SNAP dollars cannot be used for pet food, alcohol or hot, prepared foods.

Food Pantries

Food pantries offer those who are at risk of hunger packaged foods, canned goods, personal care items and fresh produce and dairy, when available. You can find a food pantry in Pennsylvania here. You can learn more about available resources in New Jersey here.
