Assistance for food

S.N.A.P. is Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.  If you need assistance to purchase food, you may be eligible for S.N.A.P. food assistance benefits.  Many of us have been financially impacted during the COVID-19 health crisis.  Some of us are working reduced hours, are unemployed, or retired on a limited income.  If your finances are tight, see how S.N.A.P. can help put food on your table.  To apply, go to and click on ‘Apply for Benefits.”  The phone number to call is 850-222-2180 for the office in Tallahassee to see about your eligibility for this benefit.  Another resource is the Elder HelpLine at 866-467-4624.  Elder HelpLine will assess individuals for Meals on Wheels and other services to help you be at home. Elder Care Community Council of Franklin County, ECCC, is also here to support you in bridging the gaps in services to those over age 55.  You can call us at 850-370-0116 to discuss your needs or email us at,  ECCC is a 501(c)(3) community organization serving those over age 55 living in Franklin County.  If you or someone you know is in need, please call us at 850-370-0116.  If you would like to volunteer with us, call to see about the opportunities.
