SNAP Benefit Assistance

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a federal government program that provides food-purchasing assistance for limited-income and no-income people to help them maintain adequate nutrition and health.

SNAP enrollment for college students supports:

  • financial relief
  • improved nutrition
  • academic success
  • social equity
  • increased enrollment and retention rates

Addressing the Enrollment Gap

In 2018, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that an estimated 2 million at-risk college students who may be eligible for SNAP benefits did not receive them.

The Hub’s peer-to-peer SNAP program aims to provide TU students with the support they need to successfully apply for SNAP benefits. We recognize that many students struggle with food insecurity and lack access to adequate nutrition.

Students can see if they qualify and schedule an appointment.

Appointment times vary by term.
