SNAP (food stamp) Outreach Guide

Improving Participation

This guide is a resource for those who are interested in improving food stamp participation in their communities. It is mainly targeted for Oregon but much is relevant to other locales. Outreach strategies can be tailored for specific community needs and resources.

Much of this information comes from a focused outreach effort to raise food stamp participation by the Oregon Hunger Task Force and community partners beginning in 2000.
