If you or your loved one fall into the “older Pennsylvanian” category… you might be eligible for the state-sponsored Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program.
SNAP is funded by the federal government and administered by the Department of Human Services. Its purpose is to provide monthly benefits via an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, which recipients can use to purchase food at their local grocery stores and farmers markets. Click here to see if you qualify.
Nutrition plays such an important part in the health and quality of life for everyone, including the elderly. Studies show that older adults enrolled in SNAP have better health and fewer hospitalizations/ER visits, so they can spend more time living their lives. Here are some stores that accept EBT in Central Pennsylvania. Simply type in your zip code to locate stores.
