A) Yes, you can use your Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits on your Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card at any authorized retail food store in the United States of America, including the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam. Your (EBT) card can be used at any retail establishment that accepts debit cards and can withdraw cash. More recently, states have been curtailing the use of the cards and expressly prohibiting their use in certain locations, mostly casinos, liquor stores or other gaming establishments.

In 2012, the federal government mandated restrictions be put in place to prohibit EBT card use in liquor stores, gaming or gambling establishments or adult entertainment venues. States can face financial penalties if they are not in compliance. All states issue Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) formerly known as food stamps, through EBT cards. SNAP benefits can only be used to purchase food items and cannot be used to withdraw cash. https://www.ncsl.org/research/human-services/ebt-electronic-benefit-transfer-card-restrictions-for-public-assistance.aspx

  1. I received a voicemail Monday, informing me that I would have a food stamp phone interview Wednesday April 22, 2020. Waited around all day and no one called. This system is so ridiculous, not that I can ever get assistance, but in the midst of this pandemic the lack of assistance is extremely alarming! I’ve been out of work since the beginning of March and have been applying since. I filed a complaint the week prior and then I suddenly got that voicemail about an appointment, but the office never called. How is a government funded division so unorganized?
