Food Assistance Programs
Many hard-working Oklahomans need a little help to make sure they get enough
nutritious food. Different programs and resources are available to help

need with the Access Oklahoma card, an electronic benefit transfer

who meets the income guidelines. Call 1-866-411-1877 for SNAP information or visit the Oklahoma Department of Human Services website for more information.
