Food Access Overview

Arrowhead Economic Opportunity Agency (AEOA) provides assistance and support for many programs
related to creating healthy and equitable food access. We work with clients interesting in obtaining for
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits by assisting in the application process. We
administer the SNAP EBT program at four local farmers markets (Hibbing, Tower, Virginia, and Cook).
AEOA also provides a variety of services to seniors in our surrounding area.
 We have created a Northeast Minnesota Food Access Guide which has information on food shelf hours and  locations, grocery financial assistance programs, free meals, and farmers markets. Contact our Food Access Coordinator at 218-404-6050 with any questions or updates to the guide.
