Need Assistance with food costs?, 1-855-240-1451

As the cost of everything rises many Americans find themselves struggling to make ends meet. North Carolina State University in partnership with N.C. Cooperative Extension has developed the program More In My Basket (MIMB) which helps reduce food insecurity 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). 

In an effort to educate more citizens about their eligibility for benefits, how to cut food costs, and how to create a food budget educational classes, demonstrations, and displays will be held throughout the community. Additionally, state staff can help you complete your benefits application. If you are looking for assistance with Food Costs review the eligibility requirements and connect with a More In My Basket representative via phone toll-free at 1-855-240-1451 or 1-888-382-7105 (para ayuda en español) or filling out the contact form at
