Another way of putting food on the table and fighting food insecurity in our community is by offering assistance with applications for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps. To ensure individuals, families, seniors, veterans and persons with disabilities have the help they need, our Benefits Connection Outreach program offers experienced, friendly and full-service SNAP application assistance at convenient locations in Orange, Brevard, Lake, and Osceola Counties.
All services are provided free of charge.
