Partnering with Nourishing Neighbors to fight hunger in our community
Imagine having to worry about when your next meal will be or not knowing what you can feed your children for dinner. Unfortunately, that is the reality many of our neighbors face every day. At 2-1-1 Humboldt we work to help find solutions for those in our community facing food insecurity.
We’re excited to be the recipients of a $10,000 grant from Safeway and Safeway’s Foundation Nourishing Neighbors to help those in our community receive the benefits of existing federal meals programs such as SNAP, WIC, P-EBT, and free or reduced school nutrition programs.
With this grant we plan to maintain an online Database with the most current information about each program and the best way to contact them. We will connect callers with the agencies who run these Federal Programs, and make sure those who need help in applying are connected with those in our community who can assist them.
We can’t thank Safeway and Safeway Foundation enough for giving us this grant to help our neighbors.
