Pennsylvania Offering Food Assistance For Flood Victims

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Pennsylvania is offering more help for people flooded out during recent storms.

Qualifying residents in 27 counties affected by recent flooding can apply for Disaster SNAP cards which will help put food on the table for those residents who are reeling after recent storms.

Catherine Buhrig, division director for federal programs and program management, explains it is a one month food supply.

"You'll be given a disaster SNAP card. Our example is for a family of four. They would receive $668 in food stamp benefits for the 30 days that the disaster covers."

You can get the card at your local county assistance office or one of the disaster recovery centers. Click here for more information.
