What Can You Buy With SNAP Food Stamps

You have just been approved to receive food stamps and you have finally received your EBT card, which allows you to purchase groceries at any store that accepts food stamps throughout the US. The question now is, what type of food can I buy with my EBT card? There are strict guidelines on what you can and cannot purchase with your food stamp benefits. The goal is to provide a list of food items that will provide you and your family with nutritious and healthy foods. This list is managed by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture).
