JCEO’s NOEP Program in Franklin County offers individuals with confidential information, application assistance and pre-screening for the SNAP Program. 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. Participants use an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card to buy food from local stores and farmers’ markets. NOEP works to increase participation in the School Breakfast Program and the Summer Food Service Program, which provide nutritious meals to school-aged children. 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.
