SNAP: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

SNAP is government program helping families in MN and across the US get more nutritious and balanced meals. SNAP can be used at various grocery stores, farmer’s markets, and senior dining sites.

SNAP recipients get an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, which works like a debit card. Each month, your benefits will be transferred to your card.

We are currently  taking phone applications.  Email groceries@sewa-aifw.org to apply or if you have any questions.

The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act allows SNAP households that are not currently receiving the maximum benefit to receive additional SNAP benefits through a new, short-term program called Emergency SNAP, or E-SNAP. The additional benefits for each household will vary and will be based on the difference between what they would normally receive and the maximum benefit for their household size. The emergency supplements are available for two months, and should cause no interruption in regular eligibility determinations for SNAP.
