In tough economic times, now more than ever, families in Delaware are feeling the money crunch. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a governmental program that provides low-income families with funds on an Electronic Debit Transfer (EBT) card. These funds can be used to purchase healthy foods at participating grocery stores, department stores such as Wal-Mart, Target and Kmart, as well as an increased number of farmers’ markets. To find Delaware Farmers’ Markets that accept EBT cards, please click here.

By reaching out to potentially eligible citizens in the state of Delaware, we can put “healthy food within reach” of people who need it but may not be able to afford it. This gives recipients more purchasing power over what foods they buy and will provide a more nutritious diet. In addition, recipients will be able to direct their budget to other essential bills such as rent, mortgage, heat, electric and water.

An increased SNAP participation rate also stimulates the local economy.  Every $5 in SNAP benefits spent creates a $9 economic impact in the community.  In 2012, $223 Million dollars of SNAP benefits were distributed to Delawareans, generating a positive impact of up to $399 million dollars to the local economy!

Eligibility is based on household size, monthly gross income level and income expenses. If your income level is lower than the levels below, then you are probably eligible and we highly encourage you to apply for benefits.

Think you may be eligible? Click here to apply or apply in person at your local State Service Center or contact the Food Bank’s SNAP Outreach Hotline.
