Program Description

The Food Benefits/EBT helps people with little or no money buy enough food for healthy meals. It does this by providing people with an EBT card, which can be used to buy food at participating stores. Kentucky Food Benefits/EBT increase the household’s food buying power when they are added to the household’s money.

Kentucky Food Benefits/EBT will be deposited into a benefit account for you each month. You will receive an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card and a Personal Identification Number (PIN) in the mail to access your food stamp benefits. You may use your EBT card to purchase almost any food item, except ready-to-eat hot foods.

The Kentucky Cabinet runs the Food Benefits/EBT Program for Families and Children.
