The Minnesota Food HelpLine can help you find food resources.
For many Minnesotans out of work, this is a stressful time. With many bills to pay, it can be difficult to afford healthy and nutritious meals on a regular basis.
We know that your unemployment is only temporary, which is why many unemployed Minnesotans have signed up for SNAP. SNAP is a program that provides temporary assistance to unemployed adults to purchase healthy and nutritious food at the grocery store, allowing you to stretch your budget while you look for a new job.
A single-person earning less than $1,605 per month may qualify for SNAP.
SNAP provides eligible Minnesotans with an EBT card that can be used to buy groceries in most Minnesota food stores. The average monthly benefit for a single adult is $111 per month, and will vary depending on your income and the number of people living in your household. Once your application is approved, you will receive your EBT card within 30 days.
A simple process exists for eligible Minnesotans to enroll in SNAP. If you’re unemployed, don’t wait any longer.
Our friendly and helpful representatives at the Minnesota Food Helpline are available talk with you to see if you qualify for SNAP and other food help close to home.
