By 4:10 p.m. Sunday, staff had processed 7,447 applications. Applications will be taken from 7am to 6pm at the Cocoa Expo site through Wednesday. To qualify for D-SNAP (Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), individuals not already receiving food benefits must have lived or worked in one of Florida’s 48 counties approved for disaster relief.
