Sometimes people feel that they shouldn't need help to get food on the table, but sometimes it is a struggle to make ends meet. If you are not sure how or if you can pay for your next meal or the food for the next week, NJ SNAP can help.

NJ SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps, is New Jersey's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program that can help low-income families buy the groceries they need to eat healthy.

The online application reduces the amount of time you have to spend in the office for an interview (if you are unable to go to the county social services board due to illness or disability, you can send an authorized representative on your behalf or request an interview over the phone).
