Service Description

Minnesota Food Assistance Program (MFAP) can help to pay for food for legal non citizens 50 years of age or older with low income. Minnesota set up this program for older noncitizens who are not eligible for the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) (formerly called food stamps).

To be eligible, older noncitizens must meet all other SNAP requirements, including having very low income. MFAP provides the same amount of food assistance as under the SNAP program, using the same policies and procedures. MFAP benefits are issued through an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, which can be used to purchase food at retailers which accept EBT. You may only use MFAP benefits for food (and for plants and seeds to grow food for your household to eat).

To learn about how to use the EBT cards, visit: https://edocs.dhs.state.mn.us/lfserver/Public/DHS-3315A-ENG

To find where you can buy food with MFAP benefits using the EBT card, use the look up at: http://www.snapretailerlocator.com
