Hunger relief nonprofit uses technology to connect people with SNAP

Forbes highlights a technology-based nonprofit called mRelief that works to minimize enrollment hassle for those apply for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. The technology includes web, voice, and text platforms that screen people for SNAP eligibility with far fewer questions than required by formal applications directly through the state. The service provides straightforward support for enrollment and retention in the programs, and in the COVID context, can reduce pressures on state and local charitable systems (like food banks) while capturing more federal dollars for eligible families. The company has served 870,000 families across all 50 states. #covid-19 #foodsecurity
