SNAP/Food Stamps

Social Services Program

The Coastal Bend Food Bank (CBFB) has a social services coordinator who assists clients in filling out benefit forms for the first time or helps them renew their applications for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), Medicaid & CHIPS. This can be done at the CBFB, at an active pantry or mobile pantry, or over the phone.

Here are the specific programs we help with:

  • Food Stamps
  • TANF
  • Adult Medicaid
  • Women’s Health Program (Medicaid for Women Ages 18-44)
  • Chip/Children’s Medicaid
  • Chip Perinatal Benefits
  • Long Term Care (Medicaid for Seniors 65+ or Disabled)
  • SNAP Cap (Food Stamps for Seniors 50+ and on SSI)

For assistance, please call our social services coordinator at (361) 887-6291 ext. 109.
