WE ACCEPT SNAP
Did you know Lone Star Family Market, a primarily WIC grocery store, also accepts SNAP?
Our locations are near WIC Clinics to help make it easier for WIC Clients to redeem their benefits. While you are picking up your healthy WIC foods, you can also redeem your SNAP food benefits at our locations.
Also during times of low availability of standard grocery items, traditional grocery stores may limit the amount or number of grocery items that can be redeemed. At our stores we never limit your redemptions. If you are approved by the government for the benefit, you can redeem as much as you like.
Many mothers on WIC also choose to use their SNAP benefit at our WIC store to purchase additional baby formula.
Woman Infants Children (WIC) is a nutrition supplement program to assist mothers get the healthiest start for their children, up to age 5. The program provides FREE nutrition education, breastfeeding support, classes and food packages for qualifying women.
WIC clients may also be eligible for SNAP, a program to help adults buy food. You can pick up qualifying food products at any of our locations.
Governor Greg Abbott announced last week that beginning in January, SNAP recipients will receive a 15 percent increase in their total benefits, which will continue monthly until June 2021. The additional 15 percent increase and the emergency allotment amount should appear in recipients’ accounts by Jan. 23.
“Thank you to the U.S. Department of Agriculture for extending these benefits and increasing the amount of benefits that Texas families will receive,” said Governor Abbott. “These emergency SNAP benefits continue to help put food on the table for many Texas families throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”
