Emergency food stamps

Posted @ 1:40 PM

San Diego County residents directly affected by the wildfires may be eligible for emergency food stamps, county officials said.

People can apply for them at county family resource centers and the four local assistance centers set up to help wildfire victims.

The stamps are available on a one-time-only basis if people meet specific requirements, such as losing a home or income because of the fires. Families who currently receive food stamps may be eligible for increased levels if they were affected by the fires.

Applications will be accepted today through Saturday.Complete instructions and guidelines are available by calling (866) 262-9881
