Food Stamp Need on the Rise: Public Libraries offer Internet Service at no Charge. No. 598.

"We applaud the Second Harvest Food Bank and the Jacksonville Farmers Market for their efforts to help food stamp recipients in Jacksonville," "We also appreciate the efforts of more than 150 community partners in Duval County who allow people to apply for food stamps at their locations.These partners include community agencies, churches and libraries."
To help make it easier for those needing assistance, the DCF has a "My ACCESS Account" service available online, so going to a DCF service center in not necessary. Public libraries offer internet service at no charge.
