New Hampshire's Health Department says food stamp benefits will be replaced for people who were affected by the widespread power outages last week.
Many people had spoiled food as a result of the power outages.
Terry Smith, the director of the department's division of family assistance, said people can request replacement food stamps no later than Dec. 10. A deadline extension has been requested.
To receive replacement food stamp benefits, recipients must provide a signed statement indicating a food loss was due to a power outage related to the storm. The statement must include the total value of the lost food.
