What Exactly is the Food Assistance Program in Kansas


The food assistance program governed by the United States Department of Agriculture known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) was once commonly called the Food Stamp Program. The focus of this program is to give low income household monthly benefits so that they can purchase healthy foods and also provide education on nutrition.


The hope is that the program will aid in curing hunger within the United States. The assistance helps the elderly, those in financial distress, the unemployed and disabled. Once accepted into the SNAP program, the assistance customer are eligible to use allotted funds to buy nutritious foods that are approved at predetermined stores.


How are Benefits Allotted


Once it has been determined that you are eligible for the SNAP program you will be given an already determined amount of money monthly. The funds will be loaded onto a debit card called a Vision card which you can be used at participating stores on approved products. The Vision card looks no different than a regular debit card, it acts exactly the same as well.


You can also use the Vision Card at local Farmer's Markets in Kansas. The program encourages you to also buy plants that allow you to grow foods at home- such as tomato plants, pepper plants and even spice plants. This is a great way to be more self-sufficient and even save more money in the long run. Find other great ways to save money on Grocery Coupon Network.


Am I eligible to receive SNAP benefits?


The program is looking for individuals that have a low income. So even if you are working, you could be eligible if you pay is below the standard. When looking into your information to determine if you will receive benefits, the department looks at all persons living within your household- even if they are not related or married to you.


This also includes the elderly- those over 60 years of age- and those with disabilities that may or may not already be receiving benefits through other departments such as Social Security Disability, veteran disability, Supplemental Security Income, disability retirement benefits and other.


The program is available for all persons if they meet the standard low-income rate within the state of Kansas- you can check the Kansas government site to see what the most current monthly and yearly gross income amounts are. Age, race, color, political beliefs, sex, national origin or disability.

If you are an immigrant or illegal citizen, you can still apply to receive benefits for any children within the household that are US citizens or legal non-residents. Being accepted or rejected by the food assistance program does not affect in any way your journey towards becoming a US citizen, in case you are in this situation and worried.
