Food Assistance Program

The Food Assistance Program helps people buy food for their family. One receives an Ohio Direction Benefit Card or cash payment, which can be used at over 900 stores in Cuyahoga County. The amount of Food Assistance Benefits received depends on the assistance group composition. Assistance groups are people who live together and fix and eat their meals together. An assistance group can be one person or one family or a group of people who are not of the same family.
