Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits may be available to eligible students. Food Assistance (SNAP) helps families and individuals stretch their food budgets to buy healthy food. The program is designed to increase nutritional levels and safeguard the health and well-being of Franklin County residents. Depending on applicant age, household composition and other life factors, participants may be required to participate in a work activity as a condition of their eligibility.
JFS Representatives are available to meet with student in person or over the phone to determine their eligibility for SNAP benefits.
TIP: Many community resources and JFS require that applicants provide documentation about themselves along with their household. Applicants can find a useful list of this information and documentation from the Franklin County Department of Job and Family Services.
