DISASTER SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (D-SNAP; Food For Florida)

To qualify, individuals:

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.

Lake 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:
