FOOD STAMPS
Food stamp benefits can help put healthy food on the table by providing monthly financial assistance to purchase food at authorized grocery stores and farmers markets. Benefits are provided monthly through a plastic benefit card, similar to a debit or credit card.
TERMS EBT Stands for Electronic Benefit Transfer. It's the system the goverment uses to disburse benefits. SNAP Stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Newly adopted name for the food stamps program. SNAP benefits is the same thing as food stamps.

WHAT SHOULD I KNOW?


Employment does not interfere with getting food stamps. Even if you are working, but earning low wages, you may be eligible. Average food stamps benefits are over $100 per person per month, and $200 or more for families. That means that the average family on food stamps receives more than $2,400 worth of food support each year. Farmers Markets often accept food stamps, so you can purchase fresh produce using your benefits. For a complete list of farmers markets that accept food stamps, see Page 26.

AM I ELIGIBLE?
Eligibility is based on household size, income, expenses and other factors. Households have to meet income tests to receive food stamps, but households that have members who are disabled or elderly (60 or older), or have out-of-pocket expenses for child care or dependant care, can have higher incomes and still be eligible.

(approximately)

*Figures are based upon standards effective October 1, 2012.

If you meet the above income qualifications, it no longer matters how much money you may or may not have in countable resources. In other words, you can now save money for education, a home purchase, or retirement and still receive food stamps.

FOOD STAMPS

IMMIGRANT ELIGIBILIT Y
NOTE Immigration status is not negatively affected if you apply for or receive food stamps.

Legal immigrants can often receive food stamps if they:

have lived in the country for 5 years or more; or are children (ages 18 or under). Ineligible immigrant parents can still receive food stamps for their children even if a parent does not qualify. Certain non-citizens, such as those admitted for humanitarian reasons, may also be able to receive benefits. Immigration status is not negatively affected if you apply for or receive SNAP/food stamp benefits.

FROM THE FARM


New Yorkers can access foods straight from the farm in two ways: farmers' markets and community supported agriculture programs or CSAs. CSA members purchase "shares" in an entire season of high quality, fresh produce grown by local farmers. Members usually pay for their shares in advance, but some CSAs adjust payment to income, accept food stamp benefits, and allow some members to pay week to week. Find the sources of fresh, local foods near you below!
