Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Outreach
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Outreach is a federally-funded program administered by the State of Hawaii that helps individuals and families with low income, disabilities or public assistance have more money for food. Our outreach workers can assist you with learning about and applying for SNAP benefits.
Lanakila Meals on Wheels is approved by the USDA to accept SNAP benefits to pay for both our home delivered meal program and senior congregate dining program.
…For me, our Saturday mornings are very special…not only do we get to give back to our elderly community, we get to share our aloha with them and in turn, we get lots of aloha back. But the best part for us is that we get to spend real quality time together on our delivery route, talking about anything under the sun, while providing a service to the kupuna and putting smiles on their faces….Randi & son, Jett, Lanakila Meals on Wheels volunteers
….We have so many doctors appointments, having the meals ready to go in the microwave is great. It helps us so much because we have a lot of medical costs and we appreciate having them. I do not cook very often because I cannot stand for very long. Thank you Lanakila Meals on Wheels for allowing us to have these meals, we are very grateful…..Grace, Lanakila Meals on Wheels recipient
