Service Description

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the program formerly known as food stamps.

SNAP is a federal program that provides nutrition benefits to income-eligible individuals and families that can be used to purchase food at grocery stores, convenience stores, and some farmers' markets and co-op food programs.

The SNAP program is administered by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) through its nationwide network of FNS field offices.

CCSOMO assists individuals and households primarily with checking eligibility and helping with enrollment and re-certification for SNAP benefits.

Eligibility

To be eligible for SNAP benefits in Missouri, an applicant must be a state resident and meet low-income guidelines. SNAP income limits can be found at this Missouri Department of Social Services (MO DSS) webpage. A MO DSS brochure in available for download here
