    A program that provides Food Stamp coupons to households who have lost food, income or liquid resources due to a Presidentially declared disaster in situations where the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved activation of the program. Households are certified for two weeks to a month depending on USDA approvals, and must be in a situation where they can purchase and prepare meals. People in mass care shelters are not eligible. If a household continues to need Food Stamp assistance after the certification period, they must apply for the regular Food Stamp program.
