SNAP All Star Agencies

Oct 28, 2014

This year, the Foodbank has been dedicated to expanding our SNAP outreach efforts by utilizing our member agency network. The SNAP Referral system is simple: agencies complete a one page form with clients interested in receiving benefits, and the Foodbank staff calls the client to complete the application over the phone. 

The new referral system has resulted in more than 200 applications completed by our staff, which ultimately means more meals for community members in need.

Thank you to our SNAP All Star Agencies who have completed more than 6 referrals this year:

  • Alliance Community Pantry
  • Bridging the Gap Ministries
  • Brunswick Food Pantry
  • Community Services of Stark County
  • Crestwood 4C’s
  • First Baptist Church
  • Helping Hands Network
  • LifeHope Community Chruch
  • Open M
  • Sarah’s House
  • Streetsboro Community Cupboard
  • The Emergency Assistance Center
  • The Salvation Army Medina
  • Vine Community Outreach
