Easy Food Stamps is a new app out of Significance Labs , a new fellowship program in Brooklyn that builds technology for those who’ve crossed the digital divide but don’t have a lot in common with the people building the net today. Easy Food Stamps is a way to apply for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)  with your mobile device. There’s more detail at Next City , which writes: “We’ve all been annoyed at some point by navigating government services like waiting in line at the DMV, or filing taxes or applying for a passport,” says Chen. “For low-income Americans, it’s no longer just an annoyance, it’s a necessity. The system, despite being more important for these Americans, isn’t any easier for them.” “At the beginning, Jimmy was looking at a wide swath of government services and processes,” says Bill Cromie, one of the co-founders of Significance Labs. “He and his team applied to a bunch of government benefits, trying to hone down — just in the minimum viable product sense — which was the service that had the most onerous process and simultaneously, the most positive outcomes.” Related -30- Brady Dale is a freelance writer, comedian and storyteller. A native of Pittsburg, Kansas, he went to Cornell and worked as a progressive community organizer for over a decade before quitting his job to pursue writing and performance. He lives in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn.
