What is SNAP?
SNAP, also called Food Stamps, is a program that helps people with low incomes pay for nutritious food. It helps kids to grow up strong and adults live healthy lives. SNAP does not pay for all the food that a person or a family needs each month, just some of it. People use an EBT card at the store to access their SNAP benefits.
Apply for SNAP online with the Minnesota Department of Human Services. Then, your application is sent to Polk County, MN to determine eligibility. SNAP recipients also get a local case manager!
