United Way Food Support Connections

The United Way of New York City's Food Card Access Project (FCAP) - NYCCAH has been a partner in FCAP since its inception in 2003. Our role is to identify appropriate sites throughout the project catchment area where community-based groups can perform food stamps pre-screenings, inform individuals of their potential eligibility for food stamps and provide them with options for submitting an application. NYCCAH has helped to coordinate food stamps pre-screening activities at over 600 locations, including hospitals, health clinics, schools, public libraries, supermarkets, senior centers and banks, as well as at soup kitchens and food pantries.
