Nutrition Education Classes
Ohio State University will be offering their "Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program" at BACM. This free 9-week course is designed to help families make healthier choices.
Produce Voucher Program
Pantry clients are eligible to receive two $5.00 voucher once a month over the summer to use towards the purchase of fresh produce, breads, honey, jelly, etc. at the Anna Dean Farmers Market at the Barberton Historical Society's Piggery on
Robinson Ave. The amount increased this year thanks to our World Hunger Grant.
BACM helps supplement the nutritional needs of the children enrolled at the Barberton Head Start by providing three meals and a snack twice a month during the school year (October-May). This program is funded through grants from the Community of Christ.
Ohio Benefit Bank (OBB)
Trained counselors are available to assist clients with applying for public assistance (SNAP, WIC, HEAP, etc.) through the Ohio Benefit Bank website.
