Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) is a federal food assistance program (formerly Food Stamps) that helps low-income families.  In North Carolina monthly allotments of FNS benefits are issued via Electronic Benefit Transfer cards (EBT cards). The purpose of FNS is to end hunger and improve nutrition and health.  It helps eligible low-income households buy the food they need for a nutritionally adequate diet.
