In South Carolina, the Department of Social Services handles the Food Assistance Program known as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). For over 30 years, the food stamp program in South Carolina has served as a way for low-income families to have a safety net during financial hardship. Food stamp programs work to end world hunger and improve the health of low-income individuals by providing a healthy diet through cash assistance. The money that families receive each month goes towards helping children, individuals, homeless persons and families who do not have enough to cover all of their bills. South Carolina has helped more than 100,000 households, who depend on SNAP to get the food necessary for a healthy meal. This not only means that children receive the type of diet that promotes growth but that adults can also achieve a better performance at work or developing job skills to improve their situation. You do not need to be out of work to receive SNAP benefits. If you are experiencing financial difficulties as a result of low wages, part-time employment or lay-off, you can apply for SNAP benefits and find relief quickly.
