Urban Greens accepts SNAP!

Starting July 20th, Urban Greens Co-op Market is processing EBT transactions at the registers! This means that we are now able to fully support the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in our store! We are committed to further food equity solutions and are working on getting WIC approval and further food equity solutions.

Our in-store Food For All program is designed to increase food access to low-income Rhode Islanders. Our shoppers have been rounding up since day 1! The contributions accumulated by our round-up initiative allows Urban Greens to offer lower income member-owners additional discounts storewide, with minimal exclusions. We are proud to be a community-owned store where everyone is welcome. To learn more about our Food For All program, please reach out to us directly by phone or email.

Urban Greens is founded and driven by the cause of equitable food access for everyone. We are excited to offer nutritional education, health food tours around the store and in our community, and promote environmental stewardship among our other guiding values. Thank you all for the continued support!

Urban Greens acepta a SNAP!

¡Desde el veinte de Julio, la cooperativa de Urban Greens procesa las transacciones de vales de comida (EBT) en las cajas! ¡Esto significa que ahora podemos apoyar completamente el Programa Suplementario de Asistencia Nutricional (SNAP) en nuestro mercado! Nos comprometemos a avanzar mayores soluciones a la equidad alimentaria y estamos trabajando para obtener el permiso de WIC y ofrecer soluciones para la equidad alimentaria.

El programa Alimentos Para Todos está diseñado para incrementar el acceso a los alimentos de todas las personas de bajos ingresos en Rhode Island. ¡Nuestros clientes han estado redondeando el costo de su compra desde el primer día! Las contribuciones acumuladas por nuestra iniciativa de redondear nos permiten ofrecer descuentos adicionales a socios de bajos ingresos en toda la tienda, con exclusiones mínimas. Estamos orgullosos de ser un mercado que es propiedad de los clientes que está abierto a todos. Para aprender más de nuestro programa Alimentos Para Todos, por favor póngase en contacto con nosotros directamente por teléfono o correo electrónico.

La cooperativa de Urban Greens está fundada e impulsada por el deseo de acceso equitativo de todos a los alimentos. Nos entusiasma ofrecer educación nutricional, visita guiada para conocer todos los alimentos nutritivos en la tienda y nuestra comunidad, y promover la gestión responsable del medio ambiente entre nuestros principios rectores. ¡Gracias a todos por el apoyo constante!
