Food Assistance (SNAP)

Food Assistance helps families stretch their food budgets to buy healthy food. The program is designed to increase nutritional levels and safeguard the health and well-being of Wayne County residents. Benefits are distributed on a “Ohio Direction Card” which can be used like a debit card at the grocery store.


Ultimately, food assistance helps families meet their basic needs while adults work toward financial stability. Food Assistance (formerly known as the food stamp program) is known nationally as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
