Food Stamps: SNAP beneficiaries could see $10 dollars for specific purchases

Millions of Americans collect food stamps to purchase food for their family each month, and the main goal is to provide nutrition to families.

SNAP is now creating an incentive to get people to purchase fruits and vegetables with their food stamps.

Over 41.5 million Americans receive food stamps every month with the expectation of spending 30% of their household income on food.

Now, SNAP is working harder to get healthy options into the hands of consumers amid inflation.

Food Stamps price matching with fruits and vegetables

The state of Washington is now allowing SNAP to match produces purchases worth at least $10.

By spending at least $10, you can see a $5 credit toward your next purchase of fruits and vegetables.

The coupon is printed at the bottom of the receipt for whatever participating store you shopped at.

The produce can be fresh or frozen, but cannot have added salt, fat or sugar.

The offer can be redeemed both online and in-store.

Expensive groceries may cause recipients to lose produce

The following locations are offering the deal:

  • Food Co-op
  • Safeway
  • Seattle Farmer’s Market
