SNAP (food stamps)

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, helps families and individuals afford groceries. If eligible, clients will receive an EBT card (similar to a debit card) which will be reloaded monthly with an allotted amount of money to be used to purchase food.

The food bank’s SNAP Outreach Team will guide applicants through the SNAP application process, help them prepare for an interview with a SNAP caseworker, and answer general questions about the SNAP program.

Our SNAP Outreach Team will contact you to guide you through the process of filling out the application and submit the appropriate SNAP office in Alabama or Mississippi.

 If you’re not receiving SNAP benefits but have some questions, contact the SNAP Outreach Team at (251) 653-1617 ext. 142, (888) 704-3663 or
