Does ebt mean.food stamps?

I'm out black.Friday shopping and I Just saw it on a sign for a clothing store

I'm not 100% sure since I've never been on food stamps but I know this is the place to ask.

Oooo see I thought ebt was for food only, and tanf was separate. I didn't know it covered all those ranges


Quoting Anonymous:

EBT is a card that has funds from: SNAP (food stamps), TANF (cash assistance), SSI, disability, or child support.



Some government employees even have petty cash funds loaded in them.



It has a variety of functions.
