FLORIDA – While Hurricane Irma makes her wy toward the Sunshine State, many residents are struggling to prepare by stocking up on water and non-perishable foods.

However, some residents who rely on Food Stamps are wondering if their benefits will be released early as DCF did last year during Hurricane Matthew.

The Department of Children and Families website announced in a notice that there has not been a decision whether or not benefits will be awarded early at this time.

UPDATE: DCF Announces Release of Food Stamp Benefits.
