Learn about benefits you got: Food Stamps

Since October 2008, the United States’ Food Stamp Program has been known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) which is a federal- aid program to provide food-purchasing assistance for low- and no-income people living in the U.S.

There are some specific requirements to get assist from this program, for immigrants , elderly persons and persons with disabilities. Looking in income requirement, individuals and households may qualify for benefits if they earn a gross monthly income that is 130% (or less) of the federal poverty level for a specific household size.

To apply for this program you will need to consult with your case manager in welfare offices where you will have to face an interview determine your eligibility.
With the food stamps, you can buy things like: breads, cereals, fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, poultry, dairy products, seeds and plants that produce food, soft drinks, candy, cookies, snack crackers, ice cream, etc.
