Cuyahoga County Emergency Food and Shelter Board awards ARRA funds

ASIA was recently awarded EFSP Phase 27 American Recovery and Reinvestment Funds to provide emergency food assistance to those who are homeless or at high risk of becoming homeless.  The funds will be disbursed between April through October 2009 and will support ASIA’s food pantry program, which provides monthly supplemental food, often items such as rice, tofu and vegetables that are culturally specific, to the newcomer community.
