Carr Fire Residents May Now Get EBT Benefits

Carr Fire Residents May Now Get EBT Benefits

Posted: Aug 21, 2018 5:50 PM

REDDING, Calif- Residents in Shasta County and all surrounding counties affected by the Carr Fire may now be eligible for food stamps.

Officials say many people who once did not quality may now qualify because of the Disaster Cal Fresh Program.

That program aims at helping victims of natural disasters much like the Carr Fire.

In fact, residents who need the service have one week to sign up and for a limited time they’ll be allowed to receive hot food items.

“But in this case because so many families are in temporary housing or don't have access to kitchens or an oven or something along those lines we have been given permission to open up that hot foods option,” Jill Haskett a Community Education Specialist.
At this time, that hot food exception will only run through September 16th.

Residents can only apply for this assistance starting Wednesday August 22, 2018 through Saturday August 25, 2018.

Then again on Monday the 27th through Wednesday the 29th.

A dangerous heatwave will take hold of northern California today and will last through your extended forecast. Well above average high and low temperatures are expected, and there will be a chance for active weather returning to some mountains areas.
