Did you know there are services to help replace lost food due to power loss, loss of income, or flooding as a result of Hurricane Florence? Based on certain circumstances, you can receive assistance through the Disaster Food and Nutrition Services (DFNS) with Beaufort County, or many other counties effected by Florence.

This program is designed to offer food and nutrition benefits for eligible households that are not currently receiving food and nutrition benefits and have experienced a loss because of Hurricane Florence. Residents may qualify for assistance for a one-month period if their home was damaged or destroyed or they have disaster related expenses, or they lost income or had food loss because of a power outage or household flooding resulting from Hurricane Florence. Eligibility is based on available income and resources. Only households located in the disaster area and had a loss at the time of disaster are eligible to apply.

This is the LAST weekend to apply for assistance in Beaufort County.
