JFS Joins MAZON Initiative to Help Alleviate Senior Hunger

Jewish Family Service (JFS) of Cincinnati has joined an initiative with 12 other JFS agencies across seven states to alleviate food insecurity among low-income senior adults and ensure they receive nutrition assistance help through the federal government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

 

The initiative, Solutions to Senior HungerTM, is sponsored by MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger in partnership with the Association of Jewish Family and Children’s Agencies (AJFCA) and is funded by the Walmart Foundation. The program is designed to reach seniors who are either unaware of their eligibility for SNAP benefits or are resistant to applying.

 

To help local Ohio seniors, Jewish Family Service will conduct SNAP outreach and education, and help eligible clients with the SNAP application.
