Food and Nutrition Assistance

How can people in NC apply for FNS?

There are three ways to apply for Food and Nutrition Services (Food Stamps):

  1. Apply online with ePass
  2. Apply in person at your Department of Human Services (DHS) office. It helps to fill out as much of the application as possible ahead of time.
  3. Fill out a paper application and mail to or drop off at your county DHS office.

Call your DHS office if one of these methods will not work for you. Watch the video below to learn about applying online through ePass. To learn more about FNS visit the Cabarrus County Department of Human Services at 1303 South Cannon Boulevard, Kannapolis.
