Food & Nutrition Services in Manhattan and Queens, NY

Apicha believes nutritious food is medicine. We offer Food & Nutrition services to provide the education and resources to make good choices about what they eat. These include SNAP enrollment assistance, HIV Nutrition Health Education, and access to a registered dietitian.

SNAP Benefits and Resources

SNAP stands for the “Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program,” formerly known as food stamps. SNAP helps New Yorkers buy food.

It is a program that offers nutrition assistance to over a million eligible, low-income New Yorkers, including families, the elderly, and the disabled. SNAP provides monthly funds on an electronic benefit card for use to buy food and groceries.

If you need help buying groceries, find out if you’re eligible by contacting our Nutrition Outreach and Education Program (NOEP) Coordinators. If you’re eligible, we’ll help you apply for SNAP.
