The average senior using SNAP receives $119 each month on a special debit card to buy nutritious foods. The SNAP debit card is accepted at over 250,000 grocery stores, farmers markets and neighborhood stores across the country.

Depending on where you live, you can apply online, by mail, or in person. Visit https://www.benefitscheckup.org/getsnap/ to see if SNAP can help you save money on groceries.
