Ohio Direction Card
In Ohio paper food stamps are no longer used. Instead, they’re a plastic Direction Card which is swiped at the grocery store checkout like a debit card.
The Ohio Direction Card can also be used to buy plants or seeds to grow food.
Use the Ohio Direction card to buy fresh produce downtown at the Toledo Farmers Market!
