Purchase Hot Foods with SNAP, DSNAP, P-EBT Benefits

The waiver approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has expired.

From August 30, 2021, through October 28, 2021, Louisiana recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (DSNAP) and the Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Program could use their benefits to purchase "hot" or prepared foods and any retailer that accepted EBT cards.
