Locating basic resources such as food, shelter, employment, or health care may mean calling dozens of phone numbers, then struggling through a maze of agencies and services to make the right connections. The 211 system helps residents find resources by dialing a simple three-digit number.
In July 2000 the Federal Communications Commission assigned the three-digit dialing code 2-1-1 for the exclusive purpose of providing widespread access to community information and referral services.
211 CNY brings together organizations in the community to better serve the residents of five counties: Onondaga, Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence. 211 is a helpful starting point for areas with small fragmented rural communities that may not be as connected as bigger cities. Under a simple, easy to remember, three digit phone number, updated information is kept under national standards, and the call or use of the database is free and available 24/7.
Join Sheila Dion, Community Educator at Erin's Angels, for a Lunch & Learn about food insecurity.
The session will discuss the magnitude of food insecurity in CNY, food-assistance resources available throughout the area, and ways to advocate for food justice. Attendees will leave the presentation with an increased understanding of the problem of food insecurity, knowledge of SNAP and other food-assistance programs, and action steps they can take to support a future in which all people have the food they need to lead healthy lives.
Please don’t forget to bring your lunch!
