What is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps, is a program that helps Minnesotans with low incomes get the food they need for nutritious and well-balanced meals.

This program is not intended to meet all of your household's food needs but instead is a supplement and provides support to help stretch your household food budget.
