Today is officially a good day, since we officially became eligible to receive Food Stamps. The federal food stamp program is now called S.N.A.P. (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), and will require a different payment schedule than listed here on the wintergreens site. If you are a part of the SNAP program and you'd like to participate in wintergreens CSA, just contact us and we'll set it up!
We expect to work with area farms and help them move toward accepting SNAP too.
If you don't know whether you're eligible or not, check the Hunger Action Network. (One in every five New Yorkers is eligible!)
Oh, it's a jolly, well-fed day!
