QUESTION: What can I purchase with SNAP/food stamps?

ANSWER: Households CAN use SNAP benefits to buy:

Foods for the household to eat, such as bread, cereal, fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, poultry, dairy products, and seeds and plants that produce food for the household to eat.

In some areas, restaurants may be authorized to accept SNAP from qualified homeless, elderly, or disabled people in exchange for low-cost meals.

Households CANNOT use SNAP benefits to buy any nonfood items, such as beer, wine, liquor, cigarettes, tobacco, pet foods, soaps, paper products, household supplies, vitamins, or medicines. Food that will be eaten in the store, hot foods, and prepared meals CANNOT be purchased with SNAP.

Some agencies that serve low cost meals are able to accept SNAP under very special circumstances, it is best to check directly with the agency to see if they are able to accept SNAP.
