The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a government program that helps people buy the food they need for good health. SNAP benefits can also be used to buy garden seeds. SNAP food benefits are put onto a Lone Star Card and then used just like a credit or debit card at any store that accepts SNAP.
SNAP CANNOT be used for:
- alcoholic drinks
- items that are not food or drink
- outstanding food bills
