Minnesota’s food programs help people with low incomes get the food they need for nutritious and well-balanced meals. With proper nutrition, children learn more easily, adults work more productively and seniors are healthier.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – SNAP
SNAP provides eligible Minnesotans with an EBT card that can be used to buy groceries in most Minnesota food stores. The average monthly benefit for a single adult is $111 per month, and will vary depending on your income and the number of people living in your household. Once your application is approved, you will receive your EBT card within 30 days.
A simple process exists for eligible Minnesotans to enroll in SNAP. If you’re unemployed, don’t wait any longer. To learn more about SNAP and other MN food assistance programs, visit the MN Department of Human Services website. Here you will find answers to frequently asked questions along with contact information.
You may also choose to contact the friendly and helpful representatives at the Minnesota Food Helpline who are available to talk with you to see if you qualify for SNAP and other food help close to home.
