SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)

SNAP (food assistance) or what was known as food stamps, helps low-income people and families buy the food needed to stay healthy. Benefits are loaded onto an ATM like card and can be used at most stores. You can now order food online and have it delivered through Amazon, Walmart and ALDI (fees may apply).  This can be used on foods such as breads and cereal, fruits and veggies, meats, fish and poultry, dairy products or seeds/plants to grow your own produce. SNAP benefits are given monthly and are based on household size and income. To apply, visit your local Division of Family Resource office or visit the FSSA Benefits page.
