Eat Better, Live Healthy, Learn More

Various research studies have shown that there is a correlation between a healthy diet, an active body, and the ability to concentrate and learn. Some of these studies have also resulted in identifying a problem experienced by college students across the United States, and especially those aged 30 and above, called food insecurity.

According to Feeding America, food insecurity is “a federal measure of a household’s ability to provide enough food for every person in the household to have an active, healthy life which could impact a student’s ability to concentrate on their studies.

Here at Savannah Technical College, we are committed to helping our students and the community achieve their highest level of success. We can help you determine if you are eligible for federally-sponsored programs that could help, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicaid, PeachCare for Kids, Childcare and Parent Services (CAPS), etc.

Through a partnership with Step-Up Savannah and the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS), we have a SNAP Outreach Specialist on campus to offer you a smoother, faster application process.

To determine if you are eligible for any of the services mentioned above, complete the online Eligibility Screening Form and submit it or  download a paper copy.

Once your pre-screening application has been processed, the SNAP Outreach Specialist will contact you to schedule an appointment to discuss your eligibility and options for these added benefits that will help you reach your educational and financial goals to obtain overall success.
