For 24 hours starting late Saturday, California Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cardholders will not be able to use their cards.

The outage is scheduled to start at 11 p.m. Saturday and end at 11 p.m. Sunday. As the weekend approaches, the California Department of Social Services is advising cardholders to withdraw cash and buy whatever food they might need in advance.

The interruption is due to a change in the vendors that operate the EBT system.

The EBT program allows people in all 50 states to transfer their public assistance benefits to participating retailers to purchase items, and ATM machines to obtain cash.
