Find Stores That Accept Food Stamps

Once you are approved for SNAP benefits, you will be mailed an EBT card. This acts like a debit card that you can use to purchase groceries at your local store. The amount available on your EBT card will be determined at your interview. You can use your food stamps anywhere in the US, for example if you receive SNAP benefits in California, you can use your EBT card to purchase food items in Arizona, as long as that store accepts food stamps in their location.

Prior to heading out to the store, you may want to know what you can buy with your SNAP benefits. To find out what you can purchase, view the SNAP approved food list in your state.
