FOOD STAMP RECIPIENTS NEED TO PICK UP CARDS

Nov. 14, 2002 – The Human Services Department will issue Electronic Benefit Transfer Cards, called EBT cards, to eligible St. John food stamp recipients on Monday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the department office across from the Cruz Bay fire station.
Human Services Commissioner Sedonie Halbert said that all food stamp recipients who have not received their cards should pick them up during those hours. Human Services staff will be on hand to handle problems or discuss concerns relating to the EBT cards.
The plastic debit cards are replacing paper food stamp coupons. For more information, call the food stamp office on St. Thomas at 774-2399.
