These days, many of us are struggling to afford all of our family’s needs. Food stamp benefits can help put healthy food within reach! 1 in 10 people in Nassau County may be eligible for monthly benefits, but half are missing out. The average benefit for a Long Island household is about $270* per month. (*Benefits vary based on household size, income, and expenses.)
What: The Health and Welfare Council of Long Island along with the Nassau County Department of Labor will be hosting a FREE food stamp prescreening and application assistance workshop on June 12th 2012.
