Multiple organizations at Kansas State University have partnered to host a SNAP advocacy training Thursday afternoon.
The training is hosted by Kansas Appleseed in coordination with Cats’ Cupboard, ECM and Food Recovery Network. Geared toward college students but open to everyone, its intent is to teach folks how to navigate and help others navigate the SNAP application.
According to a 2014 study, nearly 40 percent of K-State students experienced some level of food insecurity. The state average for Kansas residents is 12.9 percent.
The training will be at ECM on 904 Sunset Avenue from 4 to 6 p.m.
