Getting Food Stamps in Maryland, 2011 Edition
Now Available Online - Getting Food Stamps in Maryland, 2011 Edition
Getting Food Stamps in Maryland - 2011 Edition (pdf) is now available online, through Maryland Hunger Solutions' website. This guide gives Maryland residents the facts they need to apply quickly and easily for Food Stamps (also known as "Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, nationally, and the Food Supplement Program in Maryland).
More than 650,000 Maryland residents benefit from Food Stamps each month and are able to buy more fresh produce, grains, meat, and dairy products at the grocery store. Even so, a large number of residents – including many low‐income workers, seniors and immigrants – are not getting Food Stamps even though they qualify for benefits.
This means that many people are missing out on one way to stretch their food dollars and buy more nutritious food. In this challenging economic climate, many families must decide between paying bills and buying food. Food Stamps can be a tremendous help in meeting the needs of financially struggling Maryland households.
Maryland Hunger Solutions is available for presentations on hunger, Food Stamps, and how to assist community members in the Food Stamp application process. Please contact Cassandra Kaiser at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
