Why: These days, many of us are struggling to afford all of our family’s needs. SNAP benefits, formerly called food stamps, can help put healthy food within reach! 1 in 10 people on Long Island may be eligible for monthly benefits, but half are missing out. The average benefit for a Long Island household is about $250* per month (*Benefits vary based on household size, income, and expenses.)
What: The Health and Welfare Council of Long Island along with the NY State Department of Labor: One Stop Employment Center will be hosting a FREE SNAP prescreening and application assistance workshop on November 19, 2012. Find out if you may be eligible for monthly electronic SNAP benefits! Helpful staff and computers will be available to help guide you through the prescreening and application website. It’s fast, easy, and private.
Give your budget a boost and put healthy food within reach!
Please arrive by 1:30pm. The event will run no later than 3:30 P.M.
