SNAP Information

Temple University's Cherry Pantry has a referral partnership with Coalition Against Hunger to help students get connected to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as SNAP. In this meeting, you will connect with a staff member over Zoom and fill out some preliminary information. Once filled out, you will get a call from a SNAP hotline counselor within 2 business days for further assistance applying. 

All SNAP applicants must have a SSN (or have had a green card for 5+ years OR be a refugee/asylee) and meet the SNAP income guidelines in order to be eligible. College students specifically have a few extra restrictions. College students are eligible to receive benefits if they do one of the following: work 20 hours a week, have a work-study award/anticipate taking a work study position, or participate in an on-the-job training program. More information can be found here:
