USDA announces $1 million in food stamp outreach grants

From a USDA news release:

WASHINGTON, Nov. 19, 2007 - Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition, and Consumer Services Nancy Johner today announced the availability of at least $1 million in grants for public and private nonprofit community and faith-based organizations to improve awareness of USDA's Food Stamp Program for low-income households. Specifically, these grants will target the two most significantly underserved populations in the Food Stamp Program, seniors and Hispanics.

"Those in need also need to know if they qualify for food stamps, how the nutritional guidance can help their well-being," said Johner. "Public and private, faith-based and community groups all serve an important role in the President's commitment to educate those in need about USDA's food and nutrition assistance programs."
