SNAP – Nashville office temporary location
The Dept of Human Services DHS office on 2nd Avenue was destroyed in the storm. They are working to identify a new temporary location. This is the location in Nashville where SNAP participants would go for their interview, application, etc. Current SNAP participants who lost power can get replacement SNAP benefits to help with their food loss. Here’s information about the three temporary locations in Nashville.
Frozen food safety
If your pantry lost power or you are still without power, food in a freezer that’s full and the door has remained closed should be fine for 48 hours. If half-full and door has remained closed, it should be fine for 24 hours. After that, or if thawing has started, please discard.
