Food Stamps

Union County Job and Family Services determines eligibility for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps.  SNAP provides nutrition benefits to supplement the food budget of needy families, so they can purchase healthy food and move towards self-sufficiency.  Food assistance benefits enhance food purchasing power to alleviate hunger, provide a more nutritious diet, and to improve food security for low-income families.  

Eligible participants receive an Ohio Direction card, which is an electronic debit card loaded with monthly food assistance benefits.  These benefits can be used at participating grocery stores.  The Ohio Direction card system provides a safe, easy way for eiligible families and individuals access their food assistance benefits to purchase quality, nutritious food. 

Eligibility is based on family income, family size, shelter costs, and other eligibility criteria.

How to Apply

Apply online anytime, or call 937.644.1010, Monday through Friday between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM, or apply in person at 940 London Avenue, Suite 1800, Marysville, Ohio 43040.
