How to Sign Up

Each applicant must meet the eligibility criteria set by the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

Applicant must bring:

  • A photo Id of the applicant (head of household)
  • Social security numbers  & birthdays for everyone living in the household
  • Proof of combined household income, including food stamps, child support, etc.
  • Proof of residence, such as a utility bill, rent receipt, etc. with the physical address (cannot be a PO box).

              Clients may assign a pickup person to pick up for them.

After determining if the client meets the qualifications, an application is completed and signed by the client. As required, each qualifying client is re-certified every month. When the applicants sign the application, they are stating that all the information they are giving is true. False information may result in them having to pay the State agency for the value of the food improperly issued to them and may be subject to civil or criminal prosecution under State and Federal law.
