If you need help buying food, SNAP can help.

SNAP provides monthly benefits to spend at local grocery stores. You can get and use SNAP while keeping a safe distance from other people

Apply for SNAP online at www.MyBenefits.ny.gov

Everything you need to do to apply for and receive benefits can be done from home by phone or online—no need to visit a local social service office.

Use SNAP to purchase food at local grocery stores.

Shop for food using SNAP benefits online and have groceries delivered or picked up at:

Amazon—available statewide

Walmart and ShopRite—available in some zip codes (see their websites)

Help is available:

If you need help applying for SNAP, call or email a Nutrition Outreach and Education Program (NOEP) Coordinator. NOEP Coordinators tell you if you may be eligible for SNAP, answer any questions you may have, and help you complete and submit your application. It is free and confidential.

Find your local NOEP Coordinator at FoodHelpNY.org
