D-SNAP Food Assistance for Sandy Victims Available at Monmouth County Library
Attention Hurricane Sandy victims! Federal food assistance benefits for individuals and families in Monmouth County affected by Sandy, who are not already enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), will begin on Monday, Nov 26 and run for seven business days, concluding on Tuesday, Dec. 4.
One of these locations will be at Monmouth County Library Headquarters in Manalapan.
Disaster SNAP, called D-SNAP, is designed for people who are not already enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This federal safety-net subsidy is available only to people who are at risk for hunger because their disaster-recovery expenses have left them without enough money to buy food, and who were without power and as a result lost perishable food supplies.
