Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

Once known as the food stamp program, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the largest federal nutrition assistance program, providing benefits to eligible individuals and families to purchase food in authorized retail stores, including online stores like Amazon Fresh. SNAP provides benefits via an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card that can be used like a debit card to purchase eligible food.
