What is SNAP?

SNAP (formally known as Food Stamps) stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and it offers nutrition assistance benefits to eligible individuals and families. These benefits are distributed onto an EBT card which is used to purchase food items like fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, beans, bread, grains, and dairy products at grocery stores, convenience stores, farmers markets, and co-op food programs.  Additionally, it provides economic benefits to communities.
