MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Emergency food assistance may be available to those affected by Isaac.

In fact, Florida officials have set up a text alert system to help feed victims of the departing storm.

The Department of Children and Families may provide emergency food assistance to some areas after Monday’s persistent storms pass.

Residents can receive text and email alerts to find out whether food is available in their area.

Families who receive food stamps may also receive replacement benefits for any food lost because of home damage or prolonged power outages.

The “Food for Florida” disaster relief program provides emergency food assistance after hurricanes and other disasters under the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Florida distributed $270 million in emergency aid to more than 2 million people after Hurricane Wilma in 2005.
