From NCDHHS: Important information for Food and Nutrition Services (Food Stamp) recipients after Hurricane Dorian (Updated Sept. 11)


Important information for Food and Nutrition Services (Food Stamp) recipients after Hurricane Dorian

Updated Sept. 11 at 12 p.m.: North Carolina households who lost food purchased with their Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) benefits will have until Sept. 30th to report the loss to receive replacement benefits. This is longer than the normal 10 days to report the loss to receive replacement benefits. This provides additional time for families who cannot report a food loss to their local Department of Social Services (DSS) office due to displacement, transportation issues or other storm-related hardships.

Go to the North Carolina Health and Human Services department’s website to learn more about their Hurricane Dorian recovery efforts.

Posted Sept. 6 at 3:42 p.m.

Attention: Food and Nutrition Services (Food Stamp) Recipients

Due to Hurricane Dorian, households scheduled to receive FNS benefits from Sept. 9-21 will have their benefits loaded on to their EBT card on Sept. 7. This is not extra money. Please budget for buying food wisely!

During October, households receiving FNS benefits from Oct. 1-15 will receive benefits on their normal cycle. Those benefits from Oct. 17-21 will receive them Oct. 15.
