(Las Vegas, NV) Nevada Senator Harry Reid today joined with Three Square in commemorating the opening of the new Three Square Center. The center is for individuals seeking assistance with the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – formerly known as food stamps) applications.
Established in 2007 to provide hunger relief, Three Square Food Bank offers wholesome, nutritious food to non-profit and faith-based organizations, schools and feeding sites that serve a wide range of Southern Nevadans. A national model project inspired by Eric Hilton with a grant provided by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Three Square is a community collaborative partnership with businesses, non-profit agencies, food distributors, higher education institutions, the Clark County School District, governmental entities, the media and thousands of volunteers to efficiently and effectively serve hope to those in our community struggling with hunger. Three Square currently provides more than 24.5 million pounds of food and grocery product – the equivalent of more than 18.8 million meals – per year to nearly 600 Program Partners. Three Square is a member of the Feeding America network of food banks. For additional information visit http://www.threesquare.org.
