7 Things You Need to Know about Mississippi Food Stamps

At Low Income Relief, we write extensively about food stamps. Our goal is to help low income people save money and get free stuff. We have a lot of content that can help you if you have MS EBT!

  • Apply for Mississippi food stamps online. I’ve had many people tell me that the only reason they don’t have food stamps is because they’re too embarrassed to go into the office. You can apply online and skip the lines!
  • You can buy fruit trees. It’s true! You can buy much more than just groceries. You can buy seeds and produce-bearing plants with your MS EBT card! You can also buy certain gift baskets and birthday cakes. Here are some other surprising things you can buy with food stamps.
  • Shop smart. You may be able to get more food for your money at farmer’s markets and You-Pick Strawberry Fields!
  • You may be eligible for more food stamps. We’ve cracked the code on how the food stamps office determines your monthly food stamps allotment… and we’ve discovered ways that you can increase your monthly balance! Learn the trick that 90% of people don’t know about.
  • You can get cash back (it’s legal)! With smart shopping techniques, you can put cash back in your pocket when you shop with your MS EBT. Here’s how.
  • You can shop at many places. Some retailers, such as Farmer’s Markets, often offer double-up programs where you can get twice as much food as you pay for. Bulk retailers like Costco also accept food stamps. Here’s a list of places that accept EBT.  Some retailers even give you extra discounts, when you have EBT.  For example, the Mississippi Market Natural Foods Co-Op offers a Limited Income Membership Entry for households that receive MS EBT benefits.
  • You can use your EBT card in other states! Not only can you shop in other states, you can also get EBT discounts in other states. All of our state lists use green titles to indicate what venues accept out-of-state EBT cards for discounts.

Enjoy the Double Up Food Bucks program with your MS EBT card in Mississippi

In Mississippi, the Double Up Food Bucks program received about $5 million from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This allows the program to match the purchases of MS EBT and SNAP customers, dollar for dollar (up to $20) when they buy fresh produce and fruits at participating Farmer’s Markets, Grocery Stores, and Produce Stands. Not all locations participate in the program, so it is good to call before you go.
