More in My Basket Helps Reduce Hunger

— Written By

More In My Basket (MIMB) is a program developed at NC State Extension that helps reduce hunger by connecting North Carolina residents to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP is a federal food assistance program (formerly called Food Stamps), and in North Carolina, the program is called Food and Nutrition Services (FNS).

MIMB staff provides assistance to people who are interested in applying for SNAP. Staff answer questions and conduct screenings to help individuals determine eligibility for SNAP. If a person is likely-eligible, they can receive assistance with completing and submitting an application.

Assistance, which is available in English and Spanish, is provided on-site at various community events in North Carolina and through a toll-free line.
