Need help with your grocery bill?
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), is a federal program administered by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) through a nationwide network of field offices. SNAP provides nutrition benefits to supplement the food budget of low-income individuals and families.
In New Hampshire, you will notice the program referred to as the Food Stamp Program, SNAP, or even EBT, which stands for Electronic Benefits Transfer. In 2008, the federal Food Stamp Program was officially renamed the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). An EBT card, much like a debit card, is what someone utilizing SNAP (Food Stamps) uses to purchase food at the grocery store and are now accepted at some farmers markets.
