FOOD RESOURCES: Free School Lunches through October 21st
DISASTER SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (D-SNAP; Food For Florida)
To qualify, individuals:
- Must not currently be receiving benefits through the regular Food Assistance Program
- Must have been living or working in the disaster area at the time of the disaster
- Eligible individuals and families must have suffered a disaster-related loss (damage to homes, loss of food, loss of income, incurred disaster related expenses, etc.)
Eligible individuals and families should pre-register by visiting this link but they must also visit an established location in person to apply. Pre-registering will reduce the wait time for the in-person interview. It is requested that only the head of household should come for to the in-person interview.
This program is not for current food assistance recipients. Current food assistance households not receiving the maximum amount will get additional September/October benefits automatically added to their EBT card within five days of their own county opening the D-SNAP site.
Broward County DSNAP applications have closed. If an individual missed the application date, they should send their contact information to the Florida Department of Children and Families:
Customer Call Center, 1-866-762-2237 (Florida Relay 711)
Agents available 8am to 5pm Mon-Fri
DISASTER RECOVERY CENTER: A disaster recovery center in Sunrise is open to help Florida storm survivors. The DRC is open 8am-8pm seven days a week until further notice. The center offers in-person support to individuals and small business owners. Recovery specialists from FEMA, the US Small Business Association, and the state are available to provide assistance to anyone filling out applications or updating their status. Voluntary organizations are available and offer a variety of services to help survivors recover.
Registering with FEMA is the first step to recovery and requires information such as insurance policies and bank information for possible direct funding transfers. Those impacted by the storm are encouraged to register prior to visiting the DRC.
