2. Put Food on the Table
In Pennsylvania, more than 1.4 million people struggle with hunger. Many of us may not realize the grave disparities that exist in our own communities. They could be our neighbors, kids in our children’s classes. DHS offers services to eligible individuals and families to help keep their kitchens stocked with fresh, nutritious foods. SNAP can be used in-person at many grocery stores and markets around Pennsylvania, and through a federal pilot program where retailers such as Giant, Aldi, Amazon and Walmart let customers use SNAP to purchase groceries online for delivery — making healthy food more accessible through the winter months.
