The Pantry is teaming up with the Mississippi Department of Human Services to make it easier for people in need to get food by providing a place to sign up for food stamps.
From 10 a.m. to noon on each first and third Tuesday of the month, Pantry volunteers will help clients fill out the application for the state’s Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Programs — formerly known as food stamps. (January 4, 2011, Page 1)
