Assistance is available to low-income families and individuals as a monthly benefit to help with food expenses. Able-bodied adults are required to work or look for work. Only U.S. citizens and legal resident aliens may be eligible for the Food Assistance Program.
Applications are available in English and Spanish. Use the Program Eligibility and Application Kit to check eligibility and apply online. If you already receive food assistance you may check the status of your benefits by creating an online account through PEAK.
