Many Y families in our community qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)-Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) which are vital resources for underserved families. These resources must go further these days. Pandemic demand and disruptions to the supply chain have raised prices on many staple items. From milk and bread to produce and healthy snacks, families must spend more to get less.
To help stretch funds during these difficult times, the Y has teamed up with Amazon to spread the word that Amazon is making grocery shopping more accessible with SNAP EBT.! Customers can use their benefits on Amazon to shop SNAP-eligible pantry items, fresh produce, meats, dairy, and more. SNAP recipients can also get budget-saving discounts across grocery brands, free delivery options, and free access to Amazon Fresh – no membership required. Plus, customers qualify for 50% off a Prime membership. As an Amazon Associate, the Y earns from qualifying purchases. Qualifying families will also receive $10 off $35* at Amazon Fresh when they use the discount code 10SNAP at checkout. Please sign up if you qualify and help spread the word about this program and its benefits with your family, friends, networks, and with everyone who may qualify.
*Valid until December 31, 2022, on one qualifying order of $35 or more (excl. tax, tips, regulatory or delivery fees). Restrictions apply, see amazon.com/snap10fresh for details and follow the prompts to claim your discount in three simple steps:
- Create an Amazon account or sign in if you already have one.
