The federal government is offering a tax credits of up to $500 per family per year to encourage them to get to the grocery store.
But the money is only going to be used if the family does not live in a low-income household.
Here are the basics:The amount of money is $100 for a single person or $150 for a family of three.
And it is not tied to the type of food or how many meals a family gets.
The family will receive a credit if it has two adults and one child under 18 and the household qualifies for SNAP, or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
The credit is also eligible for a refund if the person and child do not qualify for SNAP benefits or if they are enrolled in a food stamp program.
The federal government has not yet announced how much it is giving out for the program.
But the program is growing and the number of people eligible for it has grown from just over 1.2 million in 2012 to 1.9 million in March, according to the Department of Agriculture.
