How do I get food assistance benefits if I’m homeless?

There are several food assistance programs available to help people who are homeless access nutritious food. These can include:

SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program): This program provides financial assistance to help low-income people buy food.

WIC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children): This program provides nutritional support for pregnant women, new mothers, and children.

Soup kitchens and food banks: Many communities have soup kitchens and food banks that provide free or low-cost meals to people in need.

To find out more about these and other food assistance programs, you can contact your local Department of Health and Human Services or Department of Social Services, or search online resources such as Benefits.gov.
