Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

 

What is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)?

 

SNAP benefits, through the United States Department of Agriculture, help eligible low-income people supplement their food budgets so they can purchase food. If you qualify, you will receive an Electronic Bnefit Transfer (EBT) card to help you buy food at authorized SNAP grocery stores and farmers markets. Look for signs that say, "We accept SNAP benefits." Benefits are put on the card each month during the time you are apporoved to receive them. After that, if you still want to qualify for SNAP, you have to apply again to see if you are eligible.

 

For addition information: Contact Us at (302) 225-1040, or the SNAP Program at 1-800-560-3372.
