Food Stamps Schedule: Food Stamps Benefits for November 2022 in Florida and Where to Get Snap Ebt Discounts!

SNAP helps low-income seniors, disabled people who live on a fixed income, and other low-income households. The Office of Economic Self-Sufficiency (ESS) in the Florida Department of Children and Families is in charge of deciding who is eligible for SNAP and sending monthly benefits to Florida SNAP accounts.

Your Florida EBT card can be used anywhere that has a Quest logo. This includes most of the big grocery store chains, some stores, and farmers’ markets that take part. Depending on where you live, you may even be able to use your EBT card to buy groceries and have them delivered to your home. You can buy most food items with your benefits, but not hot, ready-to-eat foods.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients can also get help with food through the SUNCAP Program. If you already get SNAP benefits, you may be automatically enrolled in the SUNCAP Program when you become eligible for SSI.

You can save money in other ways with your Florida SNAP EBT card. In November, SNAP recipients can take advantage of the following discounts or free services:

Amazon Prime: SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) recipients in Florida can sign up for an Amazon Prime EBT Discount for $6.99 per month, which is about half of what a normal subscription costs.

Farmers’ markets: Fresh Access Bucks (FAB), a program of Feeding Florida, is a statewide nutrition incentive program that encourages Florida SNAP recipients to use their benefits at farmers’ markets, produce stands, CSAs, mobile markets, and community grocery outlets. If you use your EBT card to buy $1 worth of fresh food, you’ll get $1 in Fresh Access Bucks. Here is a map with the locations of places that accept SNAP and P-EBT benefits and double them.

Museums, zoos, and aquariums: Through the Museums for All program, Florida EBT cardholders can get free or discounted admission to more than 600 museums, aquariums, and zoos across the country.

Emergency SNAP: As previously reported by GOBankingRates, SNAP recipients who lost food because of Hurricane Ian can get help replacing it through the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP). To get benefits, you have to sign up in advance, and eligible households will get one month of benefits equal to the most a SNAP household of their size can get each month.

The SNAP benefits for Florida are sent out between the 1st and the 28th of every month, based on the 9th and 8th digits (read backward) of your Florida case number after you drop the 10th digit.

SNAP recipients can buy the following foods with their Direction Cards:

  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Meat, fish, and birds
  • Milk and cheese
  • Grains and bread

Snack foods and drinks that don’t contain alcohol

You can’t buy alcohol, cigarettes, vitamins, medicines, supplements, live animals, pet food, cleaning supplies, paper products, or cosmetics with your SNAP benefits. You also can’t use SNAP to buy hot meals in Ohio because it is not one of the states that participate in the SNAP Restaurant Meals Program.

You can fill out an application for SNAP benefits online at or at the Department of Job and Family Services office in your county. You can also apply for SNAP through the website of your Ohio Benefit Bank

Alabama People Who Get Food Stamps Will Have More Money Each Month to Buy Food Because of Inflation

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – Inflation has hurt grocery budgets, so the USDA is raising SNAP benefits each month to help EBT users’ budgets all over the country.

The USDA looks at how SNAP benefits are given out every year. Now, people with EBT cards get an extra 12.5% to spend at the grocery store.

“The 12.5 percent is probably the highest I’ve seen since I’ve been here,” Alabama Food Assistance Director Brandon Hardin said. “It started last October, and the most each person could get was $250. Now, the most a single person can get is $281.”

Hardin said that more than 774,000 people in the state get benefits. Even though this increase is required by the federal government, Hardin said it will help Alabama families a lot.

Hardin said, “Many of our SNAP recipients, especially our elderly who don’t get as many SNAP benefits, have told us that this increase is big enough to help them.”

The state is also trying to make it easier for people in rural parts of the state to go grocery shopping.

“Food deserts are a problem in rural Alabama, but I would say they have become a problem in rural Jefferson County,” Hardin said.

The state now works with a number of grocery stores to let EBT customers order items online. Hardin said that this will help people who don’t have cars or who live in places with few places to buy food.

“It lets people who may not be able to get to a real grocery store within a certain distance order groceries, plan their trip, and pick them up,” he said.

Even though more than 774,000 people get benefits in the state, more than 380,000 households get help with food.
