SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is the new federal name for Food Stamps.
Nearly 1 in 5 Arizona households do not have enough food to last the month. Solving the hunger crisis requires more than just one community agency, faith-based organization, food bank, or government entity’s commitment.
The SNAP Partnership offers a unique opportunity for your organization to join forces with a network of organizations committed to addressing hunger in Arizona through SNAP education and application assistance. The partnership also allows you to have direct access to DES on behalf of those you serve, training and technical support to expand outreach, and a 40% reimbursement on all allowable activities and administrative expenses.
Join Wildfire and Arizona Department of Economic Security (ADES) to fight hunger and help families and individuals learn about and apply for SNAP!
