SNAP Assistance at West Suburban Community Pantry
(Woodridge, IL – May 30, 2012) The West Suburban Community Pantry is now offering DuPage residents assistance with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) registration. SNAP, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, provides extra assistance to low-income families and individuals for the purchase of food.
For children, a better diet means better learning in school. For adults, it means better performance on the job or for developing the job skill that can give them and their family independence. For seniors, it means access to a balanced diet vital to their nutritional well-being. Participation in SNAP can help stretch limited budgets, improve nutrition, and reduce the risk of diet-related health problems.
SNAP applications are available online or at the Department of Human Services office in Villa Park, however, “Applicants are pleased to have a local resource and personal assistance for completing their application”, said Anne Banks, Programs Director.
