The Food Stamp Program (SNAP) provides benefits to eligible low-income individuals and/or households in order to assist them in purchasing nutritious food. SNAP benefits can only be used for food products, as well as plants and seeds to grow food. Individuals/Households are issued a debit card that can be used just like a credit card at authorized grocery stores and other retailers. The amount of benefits received depends on the number of individuals in a household as well as their income, expenses, and other factors pertinent to program guidelines.
