SNAP (Food Stamp) Outreach at Farmers Markets
The Food Bank of Northern Nevada offers SNAP (Food Stamp) outreach to clients at a variety of locations each month. Outreach workers help clients fill out the application, they conduct the interview, and they deliver the paperwork for processing. This assistance can be vital in connecting families with SNAP benefits that helps to provide access to adequate nutritious food for their families.
This year, the Food Bank has added several Farmers Markets to the outreach schedule to assist more clients in getting connected with these important benefits. This schedule includes outreach workers at the following farmers markets throughout the season: Carson City, 3rd & Curry St. , Saturday: 8:30 a.m.—1::30 p.m., Fallon-Tuesday, 310 S.
