News Maker Jennifer Parker of DSS on SNAP relief options

Concerns have been raised about the loss of funds after the last of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP emergency funds were delivered.

Beneficiaries are facing financial shortfalls when once those emergency funds are exhausted.

Regional Departments of Social Services are offering assistance in this situation.

We spoke to the Director of Clarke County’s Department of Social Services Jennifer Parker about it in our latest news maker.

News makers are sponsored by Warren County Together We are Community.

Jennifer tells us even if you receive SNAP benefits you are also able to take advantage of food pantries in your area.

She also tells us that there are mobile opportunities that help to reduce the travel concerns in Clarke County.

Jennifer also reminds us that no matter what your personal situation is you can always reach out your local Department of Social Services for help.
