March food benefits now coming early

Food assistance recipients will receive a portion of their March benefits early, on Feb. 22. They will receive the rest of their March benefits on their regular March load date. 

This is NEW information. As a result of the February benefits being issued early during the government shutdown, the state of Ohio is adjusting the schedule for issuing March benefits so that half come out on Feb. 22 and the other half come on the consumer’s normal March load date.

We apologize for the confusion and thank you for your understanding.
