NEW YORK — The end of extra help from SNAP benefits has left many people without enough resources to buy food, including the elderly.

This population of New York can qualify for different resources that can put a plate on their table.

Here we share a list of resources for providing food assistance to the elderly:

Kind of service: Nutrition incentive program. Seniors receive booklets of four $5 coupons to buy fresh produce at farmers’ markets around the city.

Requirements: Adults aged 60 and over whose income is below a certain income threshold.

Locations served: throughout New York City.

Maintenance frequency: Coupon booklets distributed on a first-come, first-served basis in seniors’ centers or group meal centers. Coupons cannot be used after November 30 of the year in which they were issued.

Kind of service: Hot meals for groups. Some Centers also offer take-out meals.

Requirements: All adults over 60 years old. Seniors can also bring younger spouses and disabled people they live with as guests.
