Food Assistance 

The Food Assistance Program helps people with low-income buy healthy food. A food assistance household is normally a group of people who live together and buy food and cook meals together. If your household passes the Food Assistance Program's eligibility rules, the amount of food assistance benefits you get depends on the number of people in your household and how much money is left after certain expenses are subtracted, For more information, visit the Florida Department of Children and Families

Local community partner agencies help the Department of Children and Families provide access to public assistance services. To search by county or zip code to find locations in your area where you may apply for Food Stamps, Cash or Medicaid, visit Access Florida
