The Kansas Food Stamp Program, or Food Assistance Program, is a nutrition assistance program that supplies a Vision card, a plastic debit card for eligible persons to buy food.
How does the Kansas Food Stamp Program Work?
Monthly benefits are advanced onto a Vision card. When food is purchased, the cost is electronically subtracted for the person’s Vision card account. Vision cards can also be used at selected farmer’s markets in Kansas to purchase fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables.
