NOEP provides community-based outreach, education, and one-on-one application assistance to thousands of households each year to maximize the reach of SNAP.

Hunger Solutions New York is pleased to serve on the Nutrition and Food Insecurity workgroup of the NYS Master Plan for Aging, where we are working to inform priorities to improve access to SNAP among older adults. The NYS Master Plan for Aging planning group recently released a survey for older adults. The results will play a crucial role in identifying regional housing challenges, setting priorities for infrastructure and service improvements, understanding how older adults allocate their limited income, and evaluating the impact of various services.
