Emergency Food and Free Community Meals 

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

SNAP (formerly called Food Stamps) is a federally-funded program that helps eligible households and individuals purchase nutritious and healthy food. SNAP participants receive an EBT Access card, which acts like a debit card, to purchase food items. SNAP and emergency food programs together provide a more sustainable solution to end hunger. The SNAP Program helps nearly 1.8 million people (14.2% of Pennsylvanians) buy groceries every month and lifts 13.1% of those households out of poverty.

  • Apply for SNAP over the phone with the Central PA Food Bank’s Helpline at 1-877-999-5964. (Se habla Español)
