The income guidelines for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps, are slightly different than the income guidelines for food pantries. SNAP benefits are distributed based on 160% and 200% of the federal poverty line, and are dependent on the age of the applicant.

To see if you qualify, look for your household size in the left column, and then find the column for your age range. Make sure your income is at or below the dollar amount listed for your household size.  For example, if you live by yourself and are under the age of 59, your income cannot be more than $1,533 per month.
