Due to the partial government shutdown, you may not receive your February Food Benefits if your re-determination paperwork is not received in time for the department to complete processing. Please provide this paperwork to us as soon as possible but no later than noon on January 15th. You can submit your paperwork on the PEAK website found at  or bring it to the county office. We also have a drop off box located at the front door. If you are eligible to continue to receive Food Assistance you will receive February benefits before the end of January. This is not an additional benefit. February benefits will need to last you at least through the end of February or longer if the shutdown continues.

We will continue to update as more information becomes available.
