Residents of Livingston and St. Tammany parishes and 21 other parishes can begin applying for disaster food relief, the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services announced Thursday.
DCFS said residents living in these parishes can apply for Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program food assistance, according to a DCFS release. The benefits will be offered next week, from Monday through March 26, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Residents can claim the benefits by going to a listed DSNAP location on a chosen day based on the first letter of their last name.
Those who already receive benefits from SNAP will not get more assistance, though, the release says.
