SNAP (Food Stamps)

Every year, the Coalition helps thousands of residents apply for SNAP (food stamps) and other public benefits.

SNAP is our nation's most effective program in the fight against hunger. The program helps millions of families buy the food they need, so they can stretch their budgets and make ends meet.

To bridge that gap, we launched the SNAP Hotline in 2002. Every year, we screen thousands of area residents for SNAP benefits, which allows them to buy groceries for their families and frees up money to cover other needs, like rent, medicine and childcare.

Our SNAP Campaign reaches residents through:
  • SNAP Hotline: 215-430-0556: Residents of Bucks, Chester and Philadelphia counties can apply for SNAP benefits by phone. Hotline counselors are available Monday through Friday (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
  • Case Management: The Coalition helps Philadelphia residents who are wrongly denied SNAP benefits. With the cooperation of Philadelphia's County Assistance Offices, we resolve the majority of the cases we handle each month.
