Yolanda Castro

My name is Yolanda Castro, I am a Benefit Outreach Counselor for the Cleveland Food Bank. I work directly with the community in Euclid and Cleveland. We recently open a Help Center at the Cleveland Food Bank to help people that are in need. For example we help people to apply for the Food Stamps Benefits (SNAP Program) also give them information how we can refer them to get food assistance. I would like to have the opportunity to write an article for your News Paper about How the Cleveland Food Bank is helping the community. Thanks Yolanda Castro The Cleveland Food Bank Te:l 216-738-2265-Ext. 2206 ycastro@clevelandfoodbank.
