If you are struggling to purchase healthy food for your family, food stamps may be able to help. Otherwise known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), this federal assistance program feeds millions of families and children across the United States. If you are approved, you’ll receive an EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card pre-loaded with money to use at authorized locations. EBT cards can only be used to purchase approved food items.
