SNAP/EBT

SNAP/EBT users, Welcome to Local Foods Plymouth!

Local Foods Plymouth is now accepting SNAP benefits to be used at our online farmers’ market! SNAP users can easily sign up for a free membership (see “Memberships” in the menu at left) and start ordering SNAP eligible items. All orders are picked up at the UPS store on Main Street, Plymouth, NH from 3:30-5:30pm on Thursdays and the summer outdoor market.

What is SNAP/EBT?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the nation’s largest nutritional assistance program and the cornerstone of federal government efforts to alleviate hunger in the U.S. and its territories.

SNAP benefits are accessed via an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card that is processed using electronic funds transfer technology. SNAP/EBT tokens can be used to buy certain consumer products (see below for eligible and non-eligible items) To find out if you are eligible and for more information visit: http://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/eligibility or call 1-800-221-5689.

We are excited to have you on board. There are just a few easy steps to take in order for you to start ordering healthy, local foods from our year-round, online farmers’ market:
