Tornado Victimes Can Replace Damaged Food Stamp Supplies

Anyone who lost food supplies obtained with Georgia food stamps as a result of severe weather on February 19 can get replacement provisions by visiting their local Georgia Department of Human Resources Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) office.

Citizens in Hancock, Jasper, Thomas and Warren counties who currently receive food stamps may have lost supplies due to long power outages or other damage caused by Thursday’s severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. They may contact their local DFCS office and sign an affidavit stating their food loss was storm-related to have their benefits replaced.

Here is DFCS contact information for the affected counties:

· Hancock DFCS office – 220 Broad Street in Sparta; telephone: (706) 444-1203
