Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

(SNAP)

​

SNAP, once called the Food Stamp program, provides benefits to qualified households through electronic cards that enable them to buy nutritious food at participating stores.

​

Less than half of all seniors who qualify for SNAP are enrolled in the program, making low-income seniors especially vulnerable to hunger.

To make an appointment with an enrollment specialist, call the Council on Aging of Buncombe County at (828) 277-8288.  Walk-ins are also welcome at all of the Benefits Enrollment Center’s locations.
