SNAP, food stamps

Five million seniors will experience hunger this year, but only 1 out of every 3 eligible seniors receives SNAP (formerly known as the Food Stamp Program).

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The basics of the SNAP benefit.
  • Why seniors don’t apply for SNAP and what aging network advocates can do about it.
  • Opportunities to expand your resources to help older adults obtain this valuable benefit.


Nora Dowd Eisenhower, Vice President, Center for Benefits Access
Lura Barber, Senior Policy Analyst, Center for Benefits Access
