Food Stamp Expansion - March 11, 2020

Jerry Shackette talks with Erynn Sendrick about United General Hospital's Food "Stamps" Expansion You have probably heard about SNAP benefits, maybe better known to some as "Food Stamps". Host Jerry Shackette talks with Erynn Sendrick, Program Coordinator for United General District 304 whose work focuses on assisting people in understanding and applying for basic food help from what's federally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or "SNAP".

The truth is lots of people are challenged with the process of applying for this important benefit to help feed their families. Many don't even know if they qualify for the program.

Erynn gives us an inside look at how the SNAP program works, who qualifies (and just as importantly who doesn't) and how much help with healthy, nutritious food is available.

For more information and help with SNAP benefits and referral to other basic food programs such as W.I.C. and the Basic Food Employment and Training Program, you can reach Erynn Sendrick at (360) 854-7168.
