SLO community agencies and County departments team up to spread the word about food resources during COVID-19 health emergency and produce an informational video.


SLO County’s CalFresh Healthy Living recently began its project to create a series of collaborative videos to spread the word about food assistance resources in SLO County. Their goal is to create a series of short, informative, animated videos about the following resources in English and Spanish: CalFresh, Meals for Seniors, Food Delivery for Self-Isolating Residents, free school meals, WIC, SLO Food Bank, EBT/Market Match at farmers’ markets. These videos will include visuals, audio voiceovers and closed captioning and will be an inclusive outreach method to reach a wider audience.

The linked video contains county employees from the Department of Social Services, Department of Planning and Building, Department of Public Libraries, Sherriff’s Department, and Public Works.

Here are the food assistance videos that were created for SLO County residents.
