Overview

The Food Stamp Program serves as the first line of defense against hunger for Utah Residents. It enables low-income families to buy nutritious food with coupons and Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards. Food stamp recipients spend their benefits to buy eligible food in authorized retail food stores. The Program is the cornerstone of the food assistance programs, and provides crucial support to needy households and to those making the transition from welfare to work.
