Can I Apply For SNAP?

Mar 10 2018 - 10:08am

I am 63 yrs. old and have been on SSI Disability on a permanent basis. I have Section 8 Housing and was wondering if I can apply for SNAP as after paying all my bills, I am left with no money for food. I sometimes go to a Church Food Bank. Most always beans and rice and rotten produce (veggies an fruit) and no staples like milk or any other staples. I only eat once a day as I don't have much to eat. Looking forward to your reply. Thank you.

Hi,

I'm not an expert on the SNAP program, so I don't know whether or not you would qualify for any benefits. You could certainly file an application in order to find out, though. For more information, refer to USDA's website: https://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/eligibility.
