Upon approval, benefits are provided through a Kansas EBT Card (which functions and looks like a debit card) for families to purchase foods from various grocery stores and farmer’s markets.
You can manage your benefits on the ebtEDGE mobile app or the cardholder login on www.ebtEDGE.com. Each month that you are eligible for benefits, your benefits will be added to your Kansas Benefits card. Food Assistance benefits are issued monthly based on the first letter of your last name and are available at 6 a.m. on the benefits date. More information on how to use the card and when your benefits are issued will be sent if you are eligible. Purchases made using Food Assistance are tax exempt.Learn about ebt card usage
