The numbers of people coming to our outreach center for assistance are not decreasing. We are continuing to serve record numbers with food and utility & rental assistance. Last month funding was released to Florida (and every state) to boost their Food Stamp budget during these difficult economic times. It is each state's responsibility to sign up the increasing ranks of individuals who are now eligible for food stamps-many for the first time.
We are ready to assist with this task. If you or someone you know are struggling to make ends meet and buy food for your family, come to our outreach center and find out if you are eligible for food stamps through our ACCESS computer connection with Department of Children and Families. Staff are available to assist you with the process if needed. Outreach Center hours are 9am-12noon, Monday - Saturday. Food stamps can provide some financial relief for families going through a tough time. For more information call 239-275-1141.
