SNAP Assistance

SNAP 

Mid-South Food Bank offers application assistance for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP benefits (formerly known as food stamps). SNAP is a Federal Nutrition Program that helps low-income people and families buy the food they need for good health. One in five eligible people do not receive benefits because either they do not realize they are eligible, they have misconceptions about those receiving benefits, or lack the technological/transportation resources to apply. If you need any form of food assistance, you are eligible to apply. We have SNAP Outreach Coordinators in TN and MS to help. All TN residents please contact Audrena James at ajames@midsouthfoodbank.org. All MS residents please contact Keunshea Fleming at kfleming@midsouthfoodbank.org.
