NJ SNAP recipients can use their EBT benefits cards to purchase hot food at participating NJ SNAP retailers until September 30, 2021. The hot food waiver only applies to items purchased from SNAP-approved retailers located in the designated counties - Bergen, Essex, Gloucester, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset and Union.

In addition, NJ SNAP recipients in these counties will have until September 30, 2021 to request replacement benefits for food lost due to the impact of Hurricane Ida.  Replacement benefits allow you to request up to one month’s worth of your SNAP benefit amount to replace perishable items lost as a result of the storm.

SNAP recipients must contact their local Board of Social Services for replacements and additional information. 

This replacement only applies to SNAP benefits and does not apply to P-EBT benefits
