Food stamp help now available
The money is “on the table,” said Belinda Ross, Food Stamp Outreach Counselor. She wants to help families, who may need help accessing those available dollars to feed their families.
Ross said statistics show dollars are available through the Food Assistance Program, also known as food stamp program for families. The problem is they’re not applying.
“We’re trying to make it easier,” Ross said in a phone interview.
By making it easier and putting food assistance in the hands of more families who may need it, it helps a lot of people. Ross said it’s good for the family because it has more nutritious food to eat. It’s good for the economy as the families patronize their neighborhood stores, they become busier. As they sell more food, the stores may need more help to re-stock those emptying shelves.
And so it goes.
Ross said she can assist with Food Assistance applications.
Ross provides food assistance services to not only Madison County, but also Fayette, Ross, Fairfield and Pickaway counties.
She can be reached by phone: (740) 438-4732 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
