Collinwood Library Reaching Out to Local Organizations to Bring Sevices to the Community
A member of the Greater Cleveland Food Bank’s benefits outreach team will be at the Collinwood Library each 4th Monday of each month at noon They will be able to connect you to your local Food Pantry, Hot meal, Summer Feeding Site for Kids, or Produce Distribution. They will also be able to screen you for public benefits such as SNAP (food stamps) or Medicaid, and if you are eligible help you apply for the programs right then. If you have never voted before, they can help you register, or if you have moved, help you updated your voter registration. All applications take only about 5 minutes to complete, so if you have ever wondered if you might qualify for one of these programs or simply have questions, please stop down at the library. If you can’t make it that day, please feel free to contact the help center at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank at 216-738-2067. Many people are eligible and just don’t know. If you are eligible for them, you deserve them!
