    Federal Program Allows Replacement of Food Lost Due to Flooding

    The federal program that provides food assistance to those who qualify for it will replace food lost due to the recent flooding in Jefferson County. The replacement funds are available to those who are currently receiving food assistance, and covers food purchased using September Food Assistance benefits.

    The recent severe flooding has cut off many Jefferson County residents’ access to their food supplies, and in some cases has led to the spoilage or destruction of food. Those who purchased some of their food through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) during the month of September and have now lost some of it due to the flooding may fill out an affidavit requesting replacement of the funds.

    The value of the food assistance replacement will be based on the purchases made in September through the SNAP program.

    Residents who feel they may qualify for the replacement food assistance should contact Brigette Velarde at bvalarde@jeffco.us or 303-271-4837. Those seeking the replacement will need to sign an affidavit, which can be done via email, mail, or in person at Jefferson County Department of Human Services, located at 900 Jefferson County Parkway in Room 110.



    The mission for Food Assistance is to strengthen individuals, families and communities by promoting their safety, stability and independence.
