Food Assistance: The Ohio Direction Card

The Food Assistance Program, available through Logan County Department of Job and Family Services, helps income eligible individuals and families meet their nutritional needs as they work toward becoming self-sufficient.

Providing the Help When You Need it Most.

Our income maintenance programs can help you get you back on track.

Participating families are issued an Ohio Direction Card, an electronic debit card that can be used to buy food at participating retailers.

Households must meet requirements to qualify, such as resource and income limits. All able-bodied adults are required to participate in work program activities, such as those provided through OhioMeansJobs Logan County and its partnering agencies.  

To minimize the processing time of your application, please bring to your appointment the following:  identification, such as a driver's license; Social Security card; birth certificate; verification of the last 30 days of income; current mortgage or rent verification; and current utility bills.
