Tulane University Center for Public Service: Understanding Your Program: How a Simple “Program Roadmap” Can Make Planning and Evaluation More Useful workshop, October 8th, 9am – 12pm

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for your interest in the  Understanding Your Program: How a Simple “Program Roadmap” Can Make Planning and Evaluation More Useful workshop on Monday, October 8th, 9:00 am-12:00 pm at the Small Center, 1725 Baronne Street.  You may park in the lot at Baronne and Euterpe. Breakfast will be served.
Description: Everyone is under pressure to show the impact of their efforts.  Why not use an approach that not only helps you make the case to funders and stakeholders, but, in the process, gives you the understanding YOU need to make immediate improvements to your efforts.  Tom Chapel, who is the Chief Evaluation Officer at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and has been helping public and non-profit programs do planning and evaluation for several decades, is returning to repeat his series of popular workshops.

We look forward to seeing you then!

SNAP (food stamps) Outreach Training, February 15th

Hi everybody,

I will be hosting another SNAP (food stamps) Outreach training here at Second Harvest on Wed, Feb. 15th, and I would like to invite anyone interested to please attend!

As a SNAP Outreach Partner, you will help applicants with the online application for SNAP benefits, or simply provide guidance and answer questions about what the process should look like. You never have to determine eligibility, but you’re offering much-needed access to a federal program that has the potential to provide 20 TIMES more food to families in need than the boxes from a food pantry alone.

Questions to ask: Are you looking to be more knowledgeable about SNAP as a resource for your clients? Are you already offering SNAP informational materials and looking to offer more hands-on assistance? Do you have internet access and a private room/area in which you could offer SNAP application assistance? How many people are interested in/able to get trained from your organization?

Please RSVP to me by Monday, Feb 13th if you or anyone from your organization is interested in attending this training!

SHFB SNAP Outreach Training
Wed, Feb 15th
10:30AM-12:30PM
Second Harvest Food Bank, 700 Edwards Ave NOLA 70123
Light refreshments will be provided! You only need to RSVP to me, and bring a laptop if you are able.

I look forward to seeing some of you there!
