Connecting hungry New Yorkers with nutritional assistance programs
The Nutrition and Education Outreach Program (NOEP) offers free and confidential services to connect hungry New Yorkers with nutrition assistance programs.
NOEP's primary focus is increasing participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP is our nation's first line of defense against hunger stretching the monthly food budgets of all who meet program guidelines.
Hunger Solutions New York trains NOEP outreach workers in SNAP guidelines to provide individuals and households with confidential and accurate pre-screenings and application assistance. A NOEP Coordinator:
Helps applicants gather and copy the necessary documents for application
Offers home visits and in-person or over-the-phone assistance for applicants who need individualized help
Works closely with local government offices to ensure that each application is processed correctly
Identify and remedy barriers to SNAP participation
Refers households to other nutrition assistance programs and community resources
Collaborates with an array of local service providers.
