Updated Food Assistance Resource Directory is Coming Soon

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be included in the Food Council’s 2018 Food Assistance Resource Directory! 

Deadline – October 5th, 2018

As many of you are aware, the Montgomery County Food Council has put together a Food Assistance Resource Directory in order to more effectively connect residents who need food assistance with those organizations in our County that provide it, as well as create stronger connectivity between food assistance providers themselves.

Since its completion in the Fall of 2017, the Directory has been distributed at the following locations: food assistance providers, hospitals, clinics, libraries, MCPS elementary schools, WorkSource Montgomery locations, community centers, County service centers, and colleges. The Spanish language version of the Directory will soon be available, and we plan to translate it into four other languages, as well as turn it into an online searchable database.

We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback about the usefulness of this resource, and we would like to make sure that it continues to be an effective tool to help to combat food insecurity in Montgomery County.

In order for the Directory to be as accurate and comprehensive as possible, we need your help in the following ways:

1)   If your organization is already in the Directory, please go to this link to update your information. Even if your information has not changed since it was collected in 2017, there are some additional, clarifying questions that have been added to the survey.

2)   If your organization provides direct food assistance to Montgomery County residents but is not in the Directory, please fill out the survey at this link, and we will make sure to add your information.

3)   If your organization does not provide direct food assistance to Montgomery County residents, please forward this email and survey to your networks, partners, coalitions and listservs so that we can try to reach as many food assistance providers as possible.

The deadline for completion of the survey and inclusion in the updated Directory is October 5th, 2018.

Thank you so much for your help! If you have any questions or need any further information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Amanda Nesher at anesher@mocofoodcouncil.org.
