NAP to continue issuing benefits via drive-thru service throughout June

Posted on May 28 2020


The Nutrition Assistance Program will be distributing benefits through drive-thru service again at their office location in As Lito from 8am to 3pm from June 1 to 15, 2020. 

This means eligible households will be issued their benefits to them while in their vehicle. This drive thru service is in conformance with Gov. Ralph DLG Torres’ extended Public Health Emergency declaration and for ensuring the protocols for social distancing are in place to ensure safety and protection of the public and Nutrition Assistance Program personnel from Covid-19. There will be no walk-in service during the drive-thru period. 

Walk-in service for benefit pick-up only will be available beginning June 16 to 30, 2020. Additionally, only those whose names appear on the valid NAP Identification Card may receive their household’s benefits. In addition to the NAP Identification Card, the individual must have a valid photo identification card such as a valid driver’s license or passport.

The Nutrition Assistance Program has developed a schematic of how the benefit distribution will take place. See illustration.
