We noticed that every government website for food stamps was so sparse for information or just confusing to read.

FoodStamps.org has been one of the only sites to provide reliable and updated information for food stamp recipients. Recently, a new tool was developed to help visitors to FoodStamps.org find accurate and important information for each state about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The “Food Stamps by State” tool went live and allowed visitors to find all the information for food stamp eligibility, application process and asset limitations in their state in one place. Founder and owner of FoodStamps.org, Jeff Giles, talked about the formation of the tool and how its release is going to open new doors for those who are currently seeking food assistance.
“We noticed that every government website for food stamps was so sparse for information or just confusing to read. Some states would explain things clearly enough but you couldn’t really figure out what office handled the applications or who to call if there was an issue. We wanted to take away all of that confusion, consolidate the information and make it organized, just like it should be on SNAP’s main site by the USDA,” said Giles.
The new tool was in development ever since the site first opened. While the articles and blog provided plenty of information, it was still important to provide something different and instructive to visitors.
“If you’re searching for food stamps information, you obviously want to be able to break it down simply and once you’ve figured out your eligibility and applied, you can also check out some other ways to save money on food and find the cheapest food prices from FoodStamps.org’s blog,” said Giles.
The state map tool is located on the front page. It’s color coded and labeled to make it simple to find the right state, see eligibility restrictions for that state and then click the link to apply for food stamps. FoodStamps.org really makes it simple to apply for SNAP just by providing all the information in one place. In addition, visitors can find contact information and the name of the department that runs SNAP in their state.
FoodStamps.org is a leader in SNAP information. From eligibility tools, state-by-state food stamp guide, daily updated blog and how-to articles, the food stamps site has created a name for itself by providing tons of resources to its visitors. Researchers for the blog are also always looking for feedback, just click the “Contact Us” link at the top of the main site.
