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 sit down with a staff member 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. This appointment will be in person at the Cherry Pantry, which is located on the second floor of the Student Center.
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. Right now, college students who qualify for work studies (even if they do not currently work a work study job) and students who have an expected family contribution (EFC) of $0 in the current academic year (EFC can be found on their student aid report).
