Full Answer

  1. Report the food stamp card missing

    For lost, stolen or other card issues, immediately call the EBT customer service center toll-free at 888-997-1117; this is the correct number as of October 2014. A representative can take your information and disable the lost card so no one else can use it.

  2. Request a replacement

    In Louisiana, you must visit your local parish office to request a replacement card. Once your request is submitted, wait five to seven days for a new EBT card to arrive in the mail.

  3. Activate the card

    When you receive the card in the mail, contact customer service again to activate it and select a new personal identification number.
