Ohio Benefit Bank
About 400,000 Ohioans who are eligible for food stamps are not receiving them.
Through our partnership with the Ohio Association of Food Bank., the Greater Cleveland Food Bank is promoting and training counselors at community agencies to help low and moderate income Ohioans determine if they are eligible for food stamps through use of The Ohio Benefit Bank.
The Ohio Benefit Bank (OBB) is a web-based computer program to connect low and moderate-income Ohioans with access to work supports such as tax credits and public benefits, including food stamps.
