AUSTIN — Brazoria County residents who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits automatically will receive replacement benefits for food lost or destroyed due to last week’s winter storm, state officials announced Wednesday.

“Thank you to our federal partners for approving these replacement benefits for Texans in need,” Gov. Greg Abbott. “As we recover from the severe winter storm, we are ensuring that Texans affected by this storm can continue to put food on the table.”
