Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

What is SNAP?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps) helps low-income households eat well by providing extra dollars to buy food. In Oregon, people get monthly food stamp benefits to buy food on an Oregon Trail card. It works like a bank debit card in the machines at your grocery store checkout. Your Oregon Trail food stamp card will come with instructions for using it.
