After receiving numerous inquiries regarding the food stamp outage, the USDA released a statement regarding EBT cards.

“EBT cards in a number of states have temporarily stopped working today due to a technical issue that the vendor that serves these states is experiencing,” USDA Spokesperson Courtney Rowe announced.

“The vendor is working to fix this issue and EBT cards will work again once it is resolved. This issue is not related to the government shutdown.”
