Food Stamp Applications At Queens Center Mall

Each Monday, beginning on March 12, caseworkers from Queens Legal Services Corporations will be on hand at the Queens Center Mall to answer questions about food stamps and other government benefit programs, or to receive an application for the federal food stamp program.

"There are so many people living in the neighborhoods surrounding the mall that may be eligible to receive food stamps and other income supports, but have not applied for them," explains Carl O. Callender, Esq., Executive Director of Queens Legal Services Corporation. Almost half of the people now living in Queens have moved here within the last five to ten years. Many just don't know that these programs exist."

For additional information about food stamps or to see if you may be eligible, call 718-392-5646 extension 36 or stop by the Queens Visitors Center (across from Applebee's Restaurant) at the Queens Center Mall, 90-15 Queens Boulevard.
