QUESTION- I am only eligible for the minimum benefit, why is it worth my time applying for it?

ANSWER-A $23/month food benefit may not seem like a lot to some people, but you do not have to use it every month and it will accumulate and be valid for use for up to one year. $69 dollars every 3 months or $276/year towards food costs can really help.

-Even if you are only eligible for a $0 SNAP benefit, this indicates you may qualify for other benefits, like reduced Medicare premiums, telephone assistance, free or reduced cost school meals for your children, student loan deferment and other benefits.

-Most farmers' markets accept SNAP and many will match $5-$10-$20 dollars, depending on the market, so if you visit a farmers' market, that offers this incentive, four times in one month, you could receive an extra $20 for fresh produce, which can be the most pricey items on our shopping lists, while supporting local farmers at the same time.

-There are many free nutrition courses, community cooking classes, materials and resources that help individuals and families purchase and prepare nutritious meals for low cost which will help people use a minimum SNAP benefit more effectively.
