SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps)
SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is a federal nutrition program. The program provides benefits in the form of a debit card, which can be used by low income people to purchase the foods they need to be healthy.
Senior & Disability services performs eligibility interviews and administration for SNAP.

Federally known as the Commodity Supplemental Food program, Senior Grocery is a monthly box of shelf-stable foods intended to nutritionally supplement an older adult’s diet. Donated fresh produce and bread is included when it is available. The program serves people 60 years of age and older who are living at or below 130% of the federal poverty level, or enrolled in SNAP or Medicaid. Visit FOOD for Lane County’s website to learn more.
