Money Matters @NYPL: CSCS/AARP SNAP Outreach Program
Are you or someone you know having trouble making ends meet? In these difficult economic times, we know that every little bit counts. We also know that many older adults and their families live on a fixed income, and may not be able to afford all the nutritious food they need to for good health.
SNAP, or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, is the new name for the Food Stamp Program. Just like Social Security, SNAP is a federal program that provides a monthly benefit that can help with your grocery costs while freeing up precious income for other household needs.
If you or a loved one is having trouble making ends meet, come to the library to receive a free SNAP prescreening and application assistance from AARP and the Council of Senior Centers and Services (CSCS).
