The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program helps low-income North Dakotans meet their nutritional needs.
The N.D. Department of Human Services issues about $7 million in food benefits each month to about 27,200 households in the state. Forty-four percent of the program participants are children, and 42 percent of the households have earned income (are working).
Benefits are issued on EBT cards and can only be used to buy food products at grocers, farmers markets and other USDA-approved vendors.
