Increase Food Security of Your Clients
You can schedule for the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank's SNAP outreach worker to come to your pantry distribution, hotmeal or event. There are three SNAP Outreach staff members who travel to distributions all over our eight county service area to help your clients apply for food assistance, heating assistance and other benefits programs. Having SNAP outreach at your agency is a great way to increase the food security of your clients and to try out the Benefit Bank.
Refer Your Clients
Do you have clients who are in need of Food Assistance but do not know how to apply?
The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank can now help clients apply for SNAP and other programs over the phone. Have your clients call toll free to sign up for assistance today at 1-855-560-0850
Schedule a Visit
SNAP outreach does not need to disrupt the normal flow of your agency's distribution. A visit from Paige, Amber or Laura is very easy to schedule and requires very little of the host agency. You do not need a computer, internet, an extra volunteer or even a table. Laura can work with you to determine the best approach to talking with clients and getting them signed up.
