If you have a child in kindergarten through twelfth grade in your household who was
receiving free or reduced-price meals while in school, your child is eligible for the
Pandemic-Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance
Program (SNAP) benefits as a result of the school closure.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), previously
as food stamps, offers nutrition assistance to eligible, low-income individuals and families.
SNAP benefits are deposited monthly on an EBT card, called the Ohio Directions Card, which works
like a debit card, to purchase food at your local supermarket, grocery store, or farmers market.
WIC serves pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, infants and children under
the age of 5. WIC provides nutrition education, breastfeeding education and support; supplemental,
highly nutritious foods such as cereal, eggs, milk, whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables, and
iron-fortified infant formula; and referral to prenatal and pediatric health care and other maternal
and child health and human service programs.
