SNAP: Where can I use stamps for fast food? List of states and chains
A new type of nutritional assistance will soon be available for eligible people in the United States, with some states allowing such benefits to be used in fast food restaurants.
These are food stamps for citizens who are not able to cook for themselves on a daily basis.
Around 41.5 million Americans will benefit from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) each month.
This programme, formerly and colloquially known as food stamps, has a list of restaurants that allow participants to go to restaurants that accept electronic payment by transfer (EBT).
SNAP will provide benefits to eligible low-income individuals and families. Benefits are paid on a specific day each month, depending on your state.
The money will be provided through an EBT card, which is used like a debit card, to buy food at authorized food retailers.

To be eligible for the Restaurant Meals Program, SNAP clients must be certified for the program in a state that is eligible for the RMP.
