Florida food stamps released early ahead of Hurricane Dorian (September, 2019)

If you usually receive your food stamp benefits between 9/1 and 9/14, you got early access to them on 8/31. Florida released benefits early to help you prepare for Hurricane Dorian.

These are EARLY benefits, not EXTRA benefits! This means you need to budget carefully so you don't run out before the schedule returns to normal in October.

Let us know if you have any questions.
