Food Assistance Program
The ACCESS Florida Program is responsible for the State of Florida's Food Assistance (Food Stamps) Program. The Food Assistance Program helps people with low-income buy healthy food.
A food assistance household is normally a group of people who live together and buy food and cook meals together. If your household passes the Food Assistance Program's eligibility rules, the amount of food assistance benefits you get depends on the number of people in your household and how much money is left after certain expenses are subtracted.
Detailed information about the Food Assistance Program is available in the Food Assistance Program Fact Sheet.
