SNAP Assistance at The Salem Pantry

What is SNAP?

SNAP benefits include:

  • Monthly funds on a card to buy food
  • Money put back on your card when you use SNAP to buy local produce via the Healthy Incentives Program (HIP)
  • Free education and training opportunities, free nutrition education classes and resources
  • Connections to other kinds of help, like utility discounts, free school meals and more!
The Salem Pantry can:
  • Help you complete and submit the SNAP application.
  • Answer any questions you may have about qualifying.
  • Assist you with an open SNAP case or your current benefits.

Do I need to be a US citizen to apply for SNAP?

If you are not a US citizen or eligible immigrant, it is safe for you to get SNAP for an eligible family member (like your US citizen child).

If I apply for SNAP am I still able to use the food pantry?

Yes! Applying for or being approved for SNAP benefits will not effect your ability to receive food at The Salem Pantry.
