Food Stamps

Many of the SCA members are qualified to receive federal aid in the form of food stamps.

The oregon farmer's markets run a food stamp program that makes it possible to purchase fresh fruits and veggies, meats, and dairy products from local sources to supplement the house food supply.

The Oregon department of human services (DHS) runs the food stamp program here. There website has a benefits/eligibility calculator that you can use to calculate estimated monthly allowances and here is the application.

Another related local food aid project is Food for Lane County's Extra Helping program that the Janet Smith has participated in.
