SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families and provides economic benefits to communities. SNAP is the largest program in the domestic hunger safety net.

WHEAT works in partnership with the Arizona Department of Economic Security and Wildfire:  Igniting Community Action to End Poverty in Arizona (formerly Arizona Community Action Association) to ensure that those eligible for nutrition assistance can make informed decisions about applying for the program and can access benefits.

WHEAT has sites at 58 locations around Arizona where individuals and families can find out if they are eligible for SNAP, renew current benefits and apply for new SNAP benefits. Most sites are full service and offer application assistance, as well as computers to apply without assistance.

SNAP Resources

  • Distribute SNAP materials provided by WHEAT through your faith community.
  • Host a SNAP event to sign up clients for benefits.
  • Become a resource site for SNAP benefit assistance or an application site and have our coordinator train your volunteers how to assist with the application process.
