GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - About 11,000 Greenville County residents have applied for one-time food assistance benefits as part a federal program designed to help victims who suffered flood damage.

Department of Social Services spokeswoman Karen Wingo tells The Greenville News (https://grnol.co/1J2rt8x) about 10,800 applications had been received through Thursday. Hundreds more people were lined up to apply Friday.

Greenville was one of 24 South Carolina counties eligible to receive food relief from the federal Disaster Supplemental Assistance Program as a result of October’s floods.

Friday was the last day for Greenville County residents to apply for the emergency food assistance.
