The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as Food Stamps, can help you and your family buy food at supermarkets, grocery stores and other participating stores.

- You started getting much lower SNAP but your income and expenses have not changed
- You have stopped getting SNAP and you do not know why
This is part of the Massachusetts SNAP crisis!
