SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), formerly known as Food Stamps, serves as our nation’s first line of defense against hunger. SNAP provides low-income people with a consistent means to buy healthy and nutritious food at supermarkets and many farmers’ markets using an electronic card, similar to an ATM or bank card. SNAP eligibility is based on residency, family size, income and assets.
Application (in English) can be found here.
