Food Stamps and EBT
If you are trying to see if you are eligible to apply for Food stamps or need more information about EBT, you’ve come to the right place. The food stamps and EBT program, also called Food Assistance Program, is a federal nutrition program that helps low-income individuals and families buy food.
Food Stamps benefits can be used to purchase food at grocery stores, convenience stores, and some farmers’ markets.
The program is run at the federal level by the USDA and administered at the state level.
If you apply and are approved for benefits, your monthly food stamps allocation will be given to you each month on a plastic card called an EBT (electronic benefits transfer) card, which works like a debit card.
