The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides benefits to eligible individuals and families with low income through an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. This card can be used like a debit card to purchase eligible food, seeds and edible plants in authorized retail food stores. All SNAP retailers, including farmers markets, can sell seeds and edible plants to SNAP participants.
The following video explains more about SNAP benefits, what you can and can't buy with your EBT card and where your EBT card can be used.
