The Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, SNAP, formerly called the Arkansas Food Stamp Program, supplies food help to qualifying households to assist with part of their household food budget. Benefits are handed out via an EBT, Electronic Benefits Transfer card. The food assistance program supplies recipients with nutritional information, jobs and training, and sometimes work experience.
