Nearly 1 million Arizonans are enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps. SNAP helps limited-income individuals and families expand their budgets to purchase food. SNAP can be used to buy foods like fruits, vegetables, and meats at grocery stores, convenience stores, as well as farmers’ markets. It can also be used to purchase seeds and plants that produce food.
