The Cabinet for Health and Family Services oversees the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) for Kentucky. This is a food benefit program that allows people with little to no income to afford healthy food and nutritional diets. In this way, Kentucky helps others provide healthy meals for their families and allows stores to participate by accepting EBT cards with SNAP benefits. In low income households for Kentucky, hunger is a major issue, but the state is working to allow individuals and families to possess the buying power that they might not have with just the standard income. On Kentucky’s Cabinet for Health and Family Services webpage, you can find the program’s overview as well as answers to multiple questions regarding food stamps, such as eligibility, application requirements, how you apply for benefits and how to use the SNAP benefits. You can also ask about getting a new EBT card if yours is lost or stolen, or if you were approved, but never received your food stamp card. You may also want to look at the list of local DCBS offices, which you can visit to pick up an application or find out more information about food assistance in Kentucky.
