Families in New Mexico who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits will be able to use their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards to purchase eligible foods at Albertson’s online beginning tomorrow,
March 24, 2022, according to the New Mexico Human Services Department. SNAP benefits are available to those who qualify.
The majority of our SNAP clients are at risk and have a tough time locating and purchasing food on a regular basis.
According to Angela Medrano, deputy cabinet secretary for the New Mexico Human Services Department, “New Mexico is committed to finding better ways to assist people on a regular basis.”
The application for the online program submitted by New Mexico was approved by the Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in early May 2020.
A grant application for the online purchase program was submitted by the Department of Human Services in order to improve food security for New Mexican households during the “stay at home” orders associated with the COVID-19 epidemic.
Families in New Mexico are benefiting from the convenience and ease of purchasing that online shopping provides. The online retailers’ Amazon and Walmart have authorized SNAP retailers in all 50 states.
Participants in the SNAP program must establish a direct connection with the online business in order to begin shopping online. Remember that while SNAP benefits can be used to purchase qualified food products, they cannot be used to cover other associated costs, such as delivery fees.
The website www.yes.state.nm.us allows new Mexicans in need of food aid, monetary assistance, or health insurance to submit an online application for benefits.
