The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Mississippi Department of Human Services helps low-income Mississippi households that struggle to afford groceries by depositing monthly benefits into SNAP accounts, which are linked to EBT cards. SNAP is the primary source of nutrition assistance for low-income families across the U.S.

In Mississippi, EBT cards can be used at any location that displays the Quest logo. Food can also be purchased at non-traditional stores, such as farmers’ markets, truck vendors and community support agencies approved by the Food and Nutrition Service. SNAP benefits can also be used for online purchasing with authorized SNAP online retailers, such as Walmart and Amazon. 

According to the MDHS, Mississippi residents who qualify for SNAP work for low wages, are unemployed or work part-time, receive TANF, SSI or other assistance payments or are elderly or disabled and live on a minimal income. You can also use the pre-screening application at access.ms.gov to see how eligibility is determined.

You can apply for SNAP online at the Common Web Portal or the MyMDHS website. You can also request an application by phone, in person, by fax or by mail from your county office. If you qualify for SNAP, you will receive SNAP benefits within 30 days of your dated application, unless you’re entitled to receive expedited benefits within 7 days.
