SNAP Program

(Formerly USDA’s national Food Stamp Program) Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

The new name reflects the USDA’s focus on nutrition and putting healthy food within reach for low income households. Nutrition education is available to help clients learn to make healthy choices.

SNAP helps to put healthy food on the table for 28 million people each month. In South Carolina alone, over 100,000 households depend on SNAP every month to get the food they need.

As of June 2009, paper food stamp coupons are no longer in use, and have been replaced with an EBT card (like a debit card) accepted at most grocery stores.

If it’s not edible, you can’t buy it with a SNAP card. This means that things like toiletries, paper products, cleaning supplies, baby products, and other essential grocery items cannot be purchased with this card. Please keep this in mind when picking up items to donate to CCC. Food is of course vital and appreciated, but occasional donations of essential non-food items are also welcomed!
