HERO clinics in Burns and Peabody

Healthy Eating, Rural Opportunities (HERO) of Marion County, and Kansas Appleseed, will host two food assistance application clinics Saturday, June 23, in Burns and Peabody.

Volunteer advocates will be available to help attendees start, complete or finish the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) application and provide confidential help.

“In Kansas, the average food benefit per household is $247, which can be a game-changer for families,” said Joey Hentzler, Kansas Apple­seed director of advocacy.

The first clinic is from 9 a.m. to noon at the Burns Community Center, 101 N. Washington Ave., and the second clinic is from 2-6 p.m. at the Hub in Peabody, 118 N. Walnut St.

SNAP helps 254,000 Kan­sans, or one in 11 people, put food on the table. Half are working families and 75 percent have children.

The clinics are free and open to the public, and snacks and refreshment will be provided.
