Picking Up for a Client
DURING COVID ONLY – If a client is homebound or lacks transportation, another person may pick up groceries for the family, as long as he or she provide basic household information.
The Emergency Food Assistance Program
This federal program provides supplemental food that a client might qualify for every 30 days – while available monthly. Clients will be asked information about Food Stamps and Income levels to determine if they qualify for this program.
During COVID ONLY the consent will be provided verbally. Normally a client will be asked to sign paper-work that verifies that they provided information saying they would qualify. Individuals will also need to provide a special signed proxy form to pick up an allotment for someone else.
