Need help? You’re in the right place.

Social Services Assistance updated flyer51023.jpg

If you or someone you know may be food insecure and eligible for SNAP benefits (formerly known as food stamps), the Food Bank wants to connect you with the services that will help you. Our program is designed to help applicants understand what services he/she qualifies for, answer questions about the application process, and help clients fill out and turn in applications for assistance programs.

Is my income over the limit?

Use the table below to find the gross and net income limits for food stamp benefits. If your household has a person who is 60 or older or disabled, only the net income limit must be met.

To determine the number of people in your household, the most important consideration is whether the people live together and share food expenses. If you live together, eat together, and share food costs, you are a household. If you don't share food costs, you are two households (or more), even if you live together.

Food stamps are a key way to address the nutritional needs of low-income Texas families, and one of the nation's most important defenses against hunger. In Texas, nearly half (42%) of those eligible for food stamps aren't receiving them. Millions of dollars set aside for food stamps go unspent each month.
