Also known as SNAP, EBT and food stamps
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps low-income people and families buy the food they need. Benefits are provided on a debit card (EBT) and are accepted at most grocery stores and some farmer's markets. SNAP is an important resource for families to obtain healthy, affordable foods. Unfortunately, the program is underutilized in Vermont, so the Vermont Foodbank is helping to increase participation in this federal nutrition program.
