About Food Stamp Offices

Are Food Stamps only for families on welfare?

No. Eligibility for Food Stamps, or SNAP, is based primarily on the household's income level, not its type of income. Approximately 8% of households receiving SNAP benefits are also receiving TANF benefits. The most common source of income for SNAP households is earned income.

How many people participate in SNAP?

Approximately 45 million people in 21 million households receive SNAP benefits. About half of all households receiving SNAP benefits have at least one child under the age of 18. About 16% of participating households have at least one elderly member age 60 or older.

How many stores participate in SNAP?

More than 260,000 retailers are authorized to participate in SNAP. About 80% of all benefits are redeemed at supermarkets and superstores. Participating stores are monitored for their compliance with SNAP rules.
