About Lee County DSS

Lee County DSS is the local county office where you can apply for your EBT Card in North Carolina. Call for details or visit the State DSS website for an application.

Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) is a federal food assistance program that helps low-income families. In North Carolina monthly allotments of FNS benefits are issued via Electronic Benefit Transfer cards (EBT cards) . The purpose of Food and Nutrition Services is to end hunger and improve nutrition and health. It helps eligible low-income households buy the food they need for a nutritionally adequate diet.

Food and Nutrition Services is an entitlement program, so all eligible individuals and households can receive assistance. Benefits may be used to purchase most foods at participating stores. They may not be used to purchase tobacco, pet food, paper products, soap products, or alcoholic beverages.

Eligible households must have the opportunity to access benefits no later than thirty days from the date of application. Individuals with special circumstances must have an opportunity to use their benefits within seven days from the date of application.

The DSS office in Lee County NC is racist and allows monthly amounts based on what they want and not the Law. I’m not black or Hispanic so they cut my benefits. A Hispanic friend of mine who lives with her mom and only has one child receives double what I do and She makes more a month than me from her job, and I have 2 kids. This office is racist against Middle eastern persons. Also the benefits are not being put on the card monthly. the deposit dates change every month, they say the funds aren’t available. it’s something with them all the time.
