The training will be held at Trinity Christian Fellowship, W11581 County Highway X, Stanley Wisconsin 54768 715-644-5533 in the Fruit Of The Vine Room.

You and members of your program team are invited to attend this important training to learn about the FoodShare (or the federal SNAP) program, how you can assist your clients in understanding their eligibility for this grocery money, and how to help them make application for the program using the ACCESS system. 

***If you know of other agencies or programs in your community who may be interested in attending this training, please pass the invitation to them.

Why attend this training?
FoodShare helps families, hunger relief programs and the community's economy!

  • You will receive free materials to share with your community.
  • If you are new to understanding the FoodShare program and providing assistance, you will learn about who might qualify and how you can help.
  • If you have experience with providing FoodShare assistance, you will solidify your knowledge and act as a mentor by sharing your experiences with other partners.
  • You will receive a training certificate from Feeding Wisconsin and Feed My People in FoodShare application assistance.
  • You will expand the great work you are already doing by providing this crucial resource in your community.

You, our partners, are in the best situation to empower families and individuals to receive the help they need. You can play an important role in helping us expand our reach. Previous experience is not required - just a heart for serving your community.

Please email Christine@fmpfoodbank.org if you are able to attend this session, and how many will be coming, so we can make sure to have a place for you at the table (and enough materials for your group).

Deadline for registration is End Of Day Friday July 13th, 2018   

 It would be great if you are able to bring a laptop or tablet, as the ACCESS system is online and we will provide 'hands on' navigation of the system during the training. If that's not possible, let me know and I will try to find another option for you.  Snacks or a light lunch will be served.  If you have any special dietary needs please let me know or be prepared to bring something along.
