Food Support / SNAP

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps, helps low income families get the food they need for sound nutrition and well-balance meals.  The program provides support to help stretch your household food budget, but its not intended to meet all of your household’s food needs. 

SNAP eligibility depends on your household’s income, expenses and the number of people in your household.  If you are approved for the program, you will get an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card.  It is like a debit card.  Each month, your benefits are credited to your EBT account.  This card can be used to buy groceries at authorized storesfarmers markets and on line retailers.  

Learn more by reading SNAP frequently asked questions / Minnesota Department of Human Services (mn.gov) or How to use your EBT Card.
