Understanding how Compass.ga.gov food stamps work
The food stamps funds disbursed through Georgia’s Common Point of Access to Social services website (www.compass.ga.gov) are meant to finance the purchase of food. The program is run by Georgia’s department of human services. As we all know, nowadays, no actual stamps are given out: instead, people who qualify for Compass.ga.gov food stamps have money loaded onto their debit cards. They then have the chance to use the funds loaded onto their debit cards to buy food in convenience stores, as well as in supermarkets, and some farmers’ markets – you know, from the whole range of businesses that retail foodstuffs.
