You may want to review the United States Department of Agriculture's website, specifically the question and answer section of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Arizona calls this program Nutrition Assistance as of 10/1/2008. To contact the state agency please call 1-800-352-8401 or call the national number 1-800-221-5689.
Here is an excerpt from their website.
|Q.||Are SNAP clients only allowed to purchase certain nutritious foods?|
|A.||SNAP requirements for foods that can be purchased are the same as in the FSP. SNAP clients can buy all foods intended to be eaten at home. Some things, such as alcoholic beverages, cigarettes, foods hot at the point of sale, non-food items, vitamins or medicines and pet foods are not allowed.
