"Due to the partial federal government shutdown:

  • You will get your February Food Stamp benefit in January (one month early)
  • You will not get a Food Stamp benefit in February
  • You will need to carefully spend your benefit to make sure it lasts both months

What should I do if my Food Stamp verification is pending?
If you have verification pending on a Food Stamp case, it must be submitted by 11:59 a.m. on Tuesday, January 15 to or a FSD Resource Center

Will I get Food Stamp benefits in future months?
At this time we do not know if Food Stamp benefits for future months will be available.

What can you do for your family?
Carefully spend your Food Stamp benefit so that your food supply will last
