Individuals and families impacted by Hurricane Irma are eligible to receive one or more food packages with 10 to 20 food items that can be taken home and prepared as needed. Details about accessing the food are on this page along with information on how to find a local distribution site. All individuals in need of food as a result of the Hurricane Irma disaster may pick up a food package in a presidentially declared disaster county.

This is a short-term measure to address the need for food until the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) becomes available. The food packages are being made available through the Disaster Household Distribution (DHD) program administered by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in collaboration with Feeding Florida and Farm Share and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Always call before going to the site.
