Important Notice regarding SNAP Benefits

Wed, Jan 16th, 2019

Maine DHHS has asked us to post this information:

Due to the Federal Government shutdown, the State of Maine has worked with the United States Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service to help meet your February nutrition needs. 


The Food Supplement benefits you will receive on January 17th will include your entire February benefit.  Because you received your February Food Supplement benefit in January, you will not receive another allotment in February.  Please be mindful of this when you are planning your shopping for the month, and budget accordingly.
