Effective SNAP Outreach
Lisa Irving, Statewide Coordinator SNAP Outreach and Nutrition Education, NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance
David Rimai Reynolds, Director of Nutrition Outreach and Education Program Field Operations, Hunger Solutions New York
SNAP is our state’s largest nutrition assistance program, providing nearly 3 million New Yorkers with critical help to meet their food needs. New York manages several SNAP outreach programs to reach those who may be eligible for the program. In this session, participants will learn about the Targeted SNAP outreach projects that are administered by OTDA and managed by local organizations. The session will also feature an overview of the Nutrition Outreach and Education Program (NOEP), managed by Hunger Solution New York, and its coordinated statewide campaigns and initiatives to raise awareness about SNAP among populations of interest. The workshop provides an excellent opportunity to better understand and work with various SNAP outreach projects in NY.
