The Department of Economic Security (DES) has a program called Nutrition Assistance. This is the same as food stamps.

You can get the forms to apply by going to any DES office, have them mailed to you or apply on line. You can contact DES by phone or email. Their phone number is: (602)542-9935 or 1-800-352-8401.
