Alin Son, a shopper at the Spotsylvania Farmers Market in Virginia said: "As a SNAP recipient, I truly value the incentive program as it allows me to buy fresh, healthy foods with my SNAP card, and get extra funds for fruits and vegetables. I care for my elderly father and this program helps my family have access to healthy foods despite our financial limitations."
In 2016, SNAP shoppers received an average $125 per person—less than $5 per day.
No—food stamps (now known as SNAP) can’t even be spent on fast food or hot food, only groceries. Instead, people who have only a few dollars a day to spend on food often spend it on cheap staples like instant rice, instant noodles, bread and peanut butter.
