The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) program that can help you put food on the table. SNAP, formerly known as food stamps, is a monthly allocation of dollars for individuals and families who need help getting enough food. Benefits are distributed to recipients each month on an EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card, which works like a debit card. SNAP benefits can be used to purchase food at grocery stores, convenience stores and some farmer’s markets and co-op food programs.

The Food Bank’s SNAP Outreach team is available to help you sign up for the program to get you the food you need.
