Food Stamps in Red Lake Falls

The SNAP program, also called Food Stamps, provides food benefits for low-income households in Red Lake Falls. Participating households receive an electronic debit card (EBT card) that pays for certain household food items. SNAP recipients can also use the EBT card to buy plants and seeds to grow food. In Red Lake Falls, supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience stores, and farmers markets accept SNAP benefits.

Red Lake Falls SNAP Eligibility

Red Lake Falls residents qualify for SNAP benefits by meeting eligibility guidelines based on household size, income, and assets. The income and asset limits vary, depending on the household size and the number of children, seniors, or people with disabilities in the household. To qualify for SNAP, able-bodied adults without dependents must either work or participate in qualified training or educational programs. Children, seniors, and people with disabilities are exempt from SNAP work requirements. SNAP recipients must be citizens or lawfully documented non-citizens. In Minnesota, households that receive cash benefits from other means-tested programs, including Supplemental Social Security Income, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), or General Assistance, automatically qualify for SNAP.

The Red Lake County Social Service Center Food Stamp Office accepts and processes applications for SNAP benefits. The Food Stamps Office also determines eligibility for benefits and distributes benefits. Red Lake Falls residents can apply for food stamps online or through the SNAP Office. Other Minnesota offices, including the Department of Social Services or the Department of Human Services, can also help Red Lake Falls residents apply for SNAP benefits or other income-eligible benefits like TANF and Medicaid.
