Personal assistance to access food supports

Struggling with food access? Takoda helps you apply for SNAP benefits, providing financial support for fresh produce, meats, and more. Our quick one-on-one assistance takes 15-30 minutes, tailored to factors like household size and income. Eligible for up to $194 monthly, SNAP benefits are accessible for three months every three years.

For those not qualifying, Takoda connects you to alternatives like food shelves and community meals. SNAP assistance is discreetly provided through an EBT card, usable like a debit card at stores. Get started, and receive your EBT card within 30 business days. Let Takoda support your basic needs.
