National SNAP Summit Held at Foodshare

Foodshare SNAP Outreach Coordinator, Laura Roberts, hosted 13 member food banks belonging to the Feeding America Network at a Regional Strategic Planning Summit from March 21-23. The group (pictured above), including staff from Feeding America and Capacity Advisors from other food banks, met to examine the successes and struggles of offering a SNAP Outreach program.

Discussions included sharing best practices for marketing, reaching senior populations, steps to achieve program goals, working with grant and fundraising staff to maximize funds use, and reaching out to our state representatives and advocating for change to difficult barriers. Many members attending voiced their plan to take information back to their food bank to share.
