Any U.S. Citizen, even some legal alien residents, will get free food assistance as long as they meet the SNAP eligibility guidelines.

In other words, there is enough Supplemental Nutrition Assistance for every American that qualifies.

In Alabama, the SNAP is administered by Alabama Food Assistance Division as The Alabama Food Assistance Program.

The Food Assistance Division is part of Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR) and has local DHR offices in all Alabama counties.
