Introduction

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) is responsible for administering the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) program in North Carolina. The FNS program provides low-income individuals and families with food assistance through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

In order to receive SNAP benefits, claimants must first complete an application and be interviewed by a case worker. Once approved, claimants will receive an EBT card, which can be used to purchase food at participating retailers. Claimants can check their SNAP balance by logging into their account on the NCDHHS website or by calling the customer service number listed on the back of their EBT card.
