To improve access to healthy foods for UCare members.
Hunger Solutions will conduct outreach to UCare members in the metro and Greater Minnesota counties to assess food insecurity and provide SNAP assessment and food resources in member communities. We chose to partner with Hunger Solutions because that organization will also perform a Bridge to Benefits assessment, as well as refer people to Community Action Partnership or other community poverty reduction programs when working with members. Hunger Solutions also administers the Market Bucks program, which provides supplemental funding to SNAP participants for shopping at farmers markets.
UCare, Hunger Solutions.
