To apply for FNS benefits, you'll need to:
If you are located in our service area, the Food Bank's Three Squares for CENC Outreach staff members are available to help with the application process. Contact information is listed above.
Food and Nutrition Services Applications can be obtained through your local Department of Social Services office or view and print a copy now. To find a DSS office near you, search the county directory on the NC Department of Health & Human Services website.
After an FNS application is submitted to the local DSS office, a DSS worker sets up a time to review your application. Dates and times are sent by letter. If you're unable to meet at that time, call or write to the DSS office to reschedule. You cans also request to have the interview over the phone.
During the interview, the DSS worker will go over your application and may ask for additional papers to show where you live or how much money you make. You may be able to find out that day if you can get FNS benefits.
If you don't have the information your worker needs when you meet, you will have time to get it, but it may take longer for you to get benefits.
