Storyboard Artist, Benefits Access SNAP Training Video About the Benefits Access Team The Benefits Access (BA) Team at Hunger Free America works to help individuals and families determine their eligibility and apply for federal food assistance programs, such as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and WIC (Women, Infants, and Children). The BA Team runs staff training sessions several times a year to communicate complex, updated information about accessing SNAP benefits, so that HFA staff are able to assist individuals and families over the phone and at our Bronx office. About the Project The goal of this project is to create an accompanying animated video using Toonly for SNAP training sessions to make it more engaging, digestible, and accessible, especially for visual learners and newcomers to this information. The volunteer will help create a storyboard for this video, and Benefits Access team will provide some requirements for the content, comments, etc. The completed project will illustrate several different stories of clients who have worked with the BA team to access their benefits. The video will be an educational tool, and will feature “myth-busters” about SNAP.
