Food Assistance

Issues

The Good Samaritan Center’s food assistance program helps individuals and families who are either in the process of applying for food stamps or having a verifiable food emergency.

In both cases, food assistance is given for the entire length of need or emergency. Good Samaritan Center will assist with 4 meals or 40 meals depending on the verified need of the client.

We are now committing to assisting any Hinds County residents with dependents 18 & Under with a week’s worth of groceries each month, for as long as we can, throughout this pandemic even if your family already receives SNAP benefits.

We understand that your SNAP benefit amounts have not increased and that your children are eating more meals at home now. We can also assist you with applying for SNAP benefits if you are eligible and not receiving benefits yet.

Families MUST bring in ID & Social Security cards for parents in the household, social security cards for all dependent minors in the household, custody paperwork if the children in your household are not your biological children, and a recent lease or utility bill to confirm your residence.
We offer food services Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from noon to 4 p.m. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 601-355-6276.
