Virgin Islands Snap EBT Info Page

Welcome to SNAP EBT information page for the state of Virgin Islands.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programme (SNAP) of the United States Virgin Islands (previously known as the Food Stamp Programme) assists you and your family in purchasing nutritious foods. Food is available at most grocery stores and other food retailers. If you meet the program’s requirements, you will receive a special debit card. This debit card comes pre-loaded with a set amount of money to pay for food.

The card is accepted at most grocery stores, certain senior centres, and some meal delivery services. It functions exactly like a standard debit card. You use the card to pay for your groceries, and the cost is deducted from the total amount on the card. On a monthly basis, more money is loaded onto your debit card.
