SNAP Benefits & Eligibility Presentation

SNAPThursday April 30, 6:30 pm at the Riverside Branch

SNAP is a federal program that provides nutritional assistance to low-income households. Benefits supplement the food budgets of families and individuals so they may purchase more and higher quality foods using the EBT (Electronics Benefits Transfer) card. While many Rhode Islanders participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, thousands of our neighbors are unaware of their eligibility or need help in order to access benefits. This presentation will provide basic information about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and its benefits.
