(Formerly the Vermont Food Stamps Program)

3SquaresVt (formerly the Food Stamp Program) helps Vermonters stretch their food budgets. With a new name and expanded eligibility, more Vermont seniors than ever may qualify. Eligible participants will receive a plastic card that looks like a credit card (called an Electronic Benefits Transfer or EBT card) which can be used at most grocery stores, convenience stores, farmers markets and community based co-ops. Or, if everyone in the household is 65 years or older, 3SquaresVT benefits may be deposited directly into a bank account. For more details, see .
