Attention SNAP (Food Stamps) recipients

Due to the partial U.S. government shutdown, February SNAP benefits will be available on your EBT (Ohio Direction) card on January 16, 2019 and are meant to be used in February.  YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ADDITIONAL BENEFITS IN FEBRUARY.

 This means that you may have two months’ worth of food dollars on your account this month. No food dollars will be added in February.  The early food dollars are meant to help with next month’s food.  We encourage our SNAP-participating customers to plan their purchases carefully so that they have money available to meet their food needs.
