Ohio Direction Card

Each month, your food stamp benefits will automatically load onto your Ohio Direction card. The card can be used like a debit card at most major grocery and other participating stores for all food and drink except prepared hot foods or to-go meals that will be eaten immediately. The Direction Card cannot be used for non-food items such as alcohol, tobacco, paper products, pet foods, or cleaning supplies.

To activate your card or to report if your card has been lost or stolen, call Direction Card customer service at 1.866.386.3071.
