SNAP Assistance

The Berkshire Food Project can provide on- line SNAP application assistance to anyone who thinks they may be eligible. This assistance provides applicants with a convenient, supportive and secure way to access benefits online.

The electronic process provides greater convenience.   Applicants can apply in their neighborhood; they can work with a consumer advocate who speaks their language and coaches them through the process; and the program gives applicants a unique tracking number and confirmed time and date to submission, eliminating guesswork about when the application started processing.  The online application also generates step-by-step instructions on how the process works and a personalized list of verifications each applicant will need to mail or fax to complete the submission.

Interested applicants can find the latest information about applying by calling Valerie Schwarz at the Berkshire Food Project at 413-664-7378.
