For many low-income communities throughout DC, this lack of access to healthy food options makes it even more difficult to properly take care of ourselves and our families.
UPO’s Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) program is dedicated to increasing access to healthy food, fighting DC’s childhood hunger epidemic, and educating customers about health, nutrition, and eating right.
Like a debit card for grocery shopping, an EBT card can be used in place of cash, checks, or food stamps to purchase household food items such as bread, fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, and dairy products.
As DC’s official issuer of EBT cards, we process more than 57,000 cards each year and offer training to eligible DC Department of Human Services clients on how to use them.
