Huntington — Logan countians can now submit Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program applications through Facing Hunger Foodbank, formerly known as the Huntington Area Food Bank. This service was made possible by a grant opportunity through the Wal-Mart Foundation.
“By launching our SNAP Outreach Program, we are helping to potentially secure necessary groceries for thousands of families in our service area,” said Tiffany Tatum, the food bank’s Executive Director. “The Wal-Mart Foundation has provided us with the opportunity to deliver a more comprehensive means of fighting hunger.”
The food bank not only has the ability to submit SNAP applications on behalf of its clients in Logan, but also Cabell, Lincoln, Mason, Mingo, Putnam and Wayne Counties in West Virginia; Boyd, Greenup, Lawrence and Martin Counties in Kentucky; and Lawrence County in Ohio.
Individuals seeking SNAP assistance can submit an application through the food bank over the phone or in person. SNAP application assistance is available to the public Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
