Nutritional Outreach and Education Program (NOEP)
NOEP is a nutrition education program for individuals and families. Our NOEP staff will provide information and assessments to help individuals and families living in Brooklyn determine if they may be eligible and then apply for food stamps. We will also work to increase participation in the School Breakfast Program and the Summer Food Service Program at our community schools. Assuring that we reach our community members we provide services in our offices; partner schools and agencies; and conduct home visits. There are many people in the country eligible for these benefits who are unaware that they are eligible and have not applied to receive food stamps; the goal of this program is to provide nutritional education, community outreach, information, and assistance for enrollment into the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) also referred to as the food stamp program to individuals and families in need of nutritional services. Call (718) 399-0200 for more information and assistance in filling out the SNAP application.
