Texas SNAP recipients can get hot meals, request reimbursement for lost food

Through the end of March, Texans can use their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for hot foods and ready-to-eat-meals. This includes items like rotisserie chicken or prepared foods from a store’s deli. SNAP recipients whose food was lost or spoiled due to the winter storm can apply for replacement benefits. Apply over the phone by dialing 2-1-1, option 2, or download the form and follow the instructions on the Texas Health & Human Services website.
