In tough economic times, now more than ever, families in Delaware are feeling the money crunch. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a governmental program that provides low-income families with funds on an Electronic Debit Transfer (EBT) card. These funds can be used to purchase healthy foods at participating grocery stores, department stores such as Wal-Mart, Target and Kmart, as well as an increased number of farmers’ markets. To find Delaware Farmers’ Markets that accept EBT cards, please click here.

SNAP/Food Stamps Application Assistance

Get Help Applying for Food Stamps (SNAP Benefits) The Food Bank of Delaware SNAP Outreach team provides application assistance to those interested in applying for benefits. We will determine your eligibility, do the application with you at a convenient and safe location, submit your documentation to social services, and let you know what to expect during the process moving forward. Please fill out the form below and a member of the SNAP Outreach team from the appropriate county should contact you within 2 business days. Asterisk indicates required fields.

By reaching out to potentially eligible citizens in the state of Delaware, we can put “healthy food within reach” of people who need it but may not be able to afford it. This gives recipients more purchasing power over what foods they buy and will provide a more nutritious diet. In addition, recipients will be able to direct their budget to other essential bills such as rent, mortgage, heat, electric and water.

An increased SNAP participation rate also stimulates the local economy.  Every $5 in SNAP benefits spent creates a $9 economic impact in the community.  In 2012, $223 Million dollars of SNAP benefits were distributed to Delawareans, generating a positive impact of up to $399 million dollars to the local economy!

Eligibility is based on household size, monthly gross income level and income expenses. If your income level is lower than the levels below, then you are probably eligible and we highly encourage you to apply for benefits.
