 SNAP: Strengthening Schools and Communities

Wednesday, March 1, 2017 11:00 am MST

Did you know that community participation in SNAP can help strengthen your School Meal programs? SNAP participation allows more kids to be directly certified for free school meals, which streamlines administration and helps your school qualify for the Community Eligibility Provision. We will highlight how it is all tied together and how SNAP outreach benefits not only families but also supports schools and communities. Attend the webinar to learn more about how you can help families get enrolled in SNAP and how it benefits students and schools!
