FNS Disaster Assistance

FNS Responses to Recent Disasters

As part of the National Response Framework, FNS provides nutrition assistance to those most affected by a disaster or emergency. When state agencies notify USDA of the types and quantities of food that relief organizations need for emergency feeding operations, FNS supplies food to disaster relief organizations such as the Red Cross and the Salvation Army for mass feeding or household distribution. FNS also authorizes states to provide D-SNAP benefits.
