This is a short term program to help meet food needs until the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP) becomes available.

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.
