Food and Nutrition benefits, also known as the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), help low-income individuals purchase food. Authorized Food and Nutrition benefits are placed into an account. The benefits are accessed at authorized merchants using an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card.
You may be eligible for Food and Nutrition Services if your total income falls below the appropriate gross income limits for your household size. Eligibility workers determine which income limit applies to your household.
