The Garden City Empowerment Center and Step Up Savannah to Host SNAP Benefits Event October 16th

Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Wednesday, October 9th, 2019

The Garden City Empowerment Center and Step Up Savannah are partnering to help qualified people in Chatham County access SNAP benefits. SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps, is a federal nutrition program that helps individuals and families stretch their food budget and buy healthy food by providing monthly benefits via an EBT card.

During this event, Step Up Savannah will help determine if individuals and households are eligible to receive SNAP benefits and help them through the application process. Step Up will also offer assistance to those who need to renew their eligibility to receive SNAP benefits. This event is free and open to the public and a great opportunity to speak to a program representative face-to-face, ask any questions, and gain access to this critical assistance program.

Step Up Savannah will also help with applications and information for:

Childcare and Parent Services (CAPS)


Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)


Medicaid and other healthcare resources (PeachCare)


Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)

WHEN: Wednesday, October 16, 2019 4-6 p.m
