Food and Nutrition

Food and Nutrition

The Healthy Aging Program at Atlantic Health System suggests the following helpful resources to assist seniors with their nutritional needs by helping them find home-delivered meals, nutrition centers and sites, grocery shopping services and food pantries.

New Jersey Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (NJ SNAP)
NJ SNAP (formerly known as Food Stamps) enables eligible individuals and families to purchase food through a monthly financial benefit. Benefit amount depends on size of household, income and resources.

Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP)
The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program provides qualified seniors $20 in vouchers to use towards the purchase of fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs at local farmers’ markets. The program operates from June 1 to November 30 each year.
