Department of Social Services Press Release Fact Sheet

posted 2/2/2015

“Food Stamps Help Over 25,000 Individuals in Randolph County”

“Food Stamps;” is an antiquated term replaced with Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) in North Carolina and in the United States with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). In Randolph County, the FNS program assists 11,800 low income households, over 25,000 individuals, with buying the food they need for a nutritionally adequate diet. This equates to over $3 million a month and close to $40 million a year for Randolph County citizens.  

FNS is a federal entitlement program so all eligible individuals and households can receive assistance. This is where the local county Department of Social Services (DSS) steps in. DSS is the local government agency that accepts applications, collects information, and determines eligibility for the FNS program. Other agencies help with nutrition education. Funded by the USDA through NC/DHHS, UNCG’s Nutrition for New North Carolinians (Recipe for Success) project will send nutrition educational materials to FNS recipients. The Cooperative Extension has the Steps to Health program and works with the whole family, informing, empowering, and motivating adults and children alike to improve their eating and physical activity habits. Steps to Health is a SNAP-Ed program developed and administered by North Carolina State University and is also federally funded through the USDA.  

If eligible, monthly allotments of FNS benefits are issued via Electronic Benefit Transfer cards (EBT cards). The amount of the monthly allotment varies from household to household and is based on income and number of household members served. Benefits may be used to purchase most foods at participating stores. Benefits may not be used to purchase tobacco, pet food, paper products, or alcoholic beverages.  

DSS Income Maintenance Caseworkers vigorously work to collect accurate and truthful information from applicants when determining eligibility for benefits. However, with over $3 million a month in benefits, there is a risk of fraudulent activity. Randolph County DSS has a Program Integrity Unit that works diligently to ensure fraud, waste, and abuse of FNS benefits are identified and prevented. DSS is currently investigating a local FNS trafficking case and will report the summary of this investigation later. 

U. S. Citizens or immigrants admitted to the United States under a specific immigration status can apply for FNS benefits through various methods. NC residents can apply online at . An application can also be mailed to, or dropped off at, your local county DSS. In Randolph County there are two locations: 1512 N. Fayetteville St. Asheboro, NC or 402 Balfour Dr. Archdale, NC. The mailing address is: P.O. Box 3239 Asheboro, NC 27204.
