SNAP Benefits

SNAP is a food assistance program that provides monthly benefits to help you pay for food. SNAP is sometimes referred to as food stamps. SNAP benefits are loaded onto an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card monthly that can be used to pay for food at a SNAP authorized retail store. In Louisiana, the EBT card is also called the Louisiana Purchase card. SNAP helps many students to complete their studies and not let financial stress of having to pay for food get in the way of their goals.
