The Alaska Food Stamp Program provides food benefits to low income households. The Federal government funds 100 percent of the food stamp benefit. The State pays half the costs of operating the Food Stamp Program in Alaska. The Division of Public Assistance issues food stamp benefits via the Alaska Quest card.
