Food stamps, or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), are being sent out through July 28. States across the U.S. are reloading Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards, allowing SNAP recipients to purchase groceries and save on healthy food. It’s crucial to remember that food stamps are for low-income families, and any change in your financial situation could impact your eligibility.

Eligibility

To receive food stamps, you must get approval based on your financial situation. This benefit is designed for low-income families, so any improvement or decline in your financial status may affect your eligibility. Staying updated with your state’s requirements is essential to maintain your benefits.
