What is SNAP?


The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, is a federal program that offers nutrition assistance benefits to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families. On a monthly basis, SNAP participants receive a fixed quantity of SNAP benefits on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Card. The SNAP EBT card can be used like a debit card to purchase healthy food at authorized area retail stores and supermarkets
