Food Stamps, also known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), provides nutrition benefits to low-income families throughout the country. To qualify, you generally need to meet income, work and resource requirements along with some other state-specific criteria. Food stamps are issued through electronic benefit transfer (EBT) cards, which are similar to debit cards and pre-loaded with a certain amount of benefits/money. You can use EBT cards to purchase qualified foods at participating grocery and retail stores. Find out more about the food stamps program and EBT cards when you download our free guide.
