Over 101,000 people in our area struggle with hunger.
In the aftermath of a sudden crisis like the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, or a medical emergency, a thriving family can suddenly find themselves struggling to make ends meet. Many families may be working, but still unable to make ends meet. Others are unable to work due to age or disability.
In order to help hungry families in our community get access to food, Golden Harvest launched the SNAP Outreach Program. Our SNAP Outreach staff help to connect individuals in need with the Federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and to assist in navigating the application process.
Golden Harvest provides assistance with applying for Food Stamps (SNAP). If you are interested in learning more or submitting an application, our Georgia Benefits Advisor Cierra Prince can be reached at:
