3SquaresVT, also known as SNAP, EBT and food stamps helps low-income people and families buy the food they need. Benefits are generally provided on a debit card (EBT) and are accepted at most grocery stores and many farmer’s markets.
3SquaresVT 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.
