Program Description

The Hawaii Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps supplement food budgets for low-income working families and individuals, people on public assistance, seniors and people with disabilities. In Hawaii, SNAP benefits are distributed through the state’s Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) system. SNAP represents the pledge that hunger will not be tolerated in America. It is the tangible expression of the unalterable belief that everyone has a right to food for themselves and their families. The program is the cornerstone of the Federal government’s food assistance programs. It provided more than $22 billion in benefits in 1996- more than $60 million every day. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) administers SNAP at the Federal level through its Food and Nutrition Service (FNS). State agencies administer the program at the state and local levels, including determination of eligibility and allotments.
