Q) I have been trying to reapply for FL Food Stamp for a couple months and finally got an interview a couple weeks ago. But every day I call and get answering machine. Which I left message and now it’s past my deadline and no one won’t answer the phone for interview. Can I come in the office and do this. We are in emergency state for food. We need this done. Help please with this .
A) I’m sorry to hear that you’re experiencing difficulties reaching someone at the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) regarding your Food Stamp application and interview. I understand that you’re in a difficult situation and need assistance as soon as possible.
In this situation, I would recommend that you visit your local DCF office in person to follow up on your Food Stamp application and interview. You may need to wait in line and be prepared to spend some time at the office, so it’s a good idea to bring any necessary documentation with you and to plan accordingly.
Before you go to the office, you may also want to check the DCF website or call the local office to confirm their hours of operation and any COVID-19 protocols that may be in place, such as mask requirements or appointment-only services.
If you continue to experience difficulties reaching someone at DCF, you may also want to consider contacting your state or local elected officials for assistance. They may be able to help connect you with the appropriate resources or advocate on your behalf.
I understand that you are in a difficult situation and that you need food assistance. It is frustrating to not be able to get through to the SNAP office, especially when you have been trying for so long.
I would recommend that you try to go to the office in person. This will allow you to speak to someone directly and to explain your situation. You may also be able to get help with your application on the spot.
Here are some tips for going to the SNAP office in person:
- Make sure you have all of the necessary documentation, such as your most recent pay stub and your Social Security number.
- Be prepared to answer any questions that the office may have.
- Be patient, as the office may be busy.
I hope that this information is helpful and that you’re able to get the assistance you need.
