People who are signed up for food stamps and who lost their food because of the storm can receive replacement food stamps in several ways:
The first, and probably the quickest, is to go to the Rath County Office Building, 158 Pearl St., to fill out a special form.
Or call Social Services at 858-7239 and ask for the form to be mailed to you. It must be returned within 10 days.
Or call your Social Services caseworker and ask that a form be sent to you.
If you need food in the meantime, go to a food pantry for help. A list of open pantries follows:
