Nutrition Outreach and Education Program (NOEP)
Hunger Solutions New York manages NOEP in nearly every county in New York State and throughout all boroughs of New York City. The program offers free, confidential, one-on-one services that help hungry New Yorkers get nutrition assistance. NOEP Coordinators help applicants gather documentation for, fill out, and send in the SNAP application.
In existence since 1987, NOEP’s nationally recognized model is one of the largest Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) outreach programs in the nation. SNAP is a federally-funded program that stretches the monthly food budgets of all who meet program guidelines.
NOEP also works to increase participation in the School Breakfast Program and the Summer Food Service Program, which provide nutritious meals to school-aged children.
Through NOEP’s community-based work, each year tens of thousands of new households apply for and receive nutrition assistance.
- Help applicants gather documents necessary for, fill out and send in a SNAP application
