Since July 20, 2019, the Urban Greens cooperative has been processing food stamp transactions (EBT) at checkouts! This means that we can now fully support the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in our marketplace! We are committed to advancing greater food equity solutions and are working to obtain WIC clearance and offer food equity solutions.
The Food for All program is designed to increase access to food for all low-income people in Rhode Island. Our customers have been rounding up the cost of their purchase since day one! Contributions accrued from our rounding initiative allow us to offer additional discounts to low-income members throughout the store, with minimal exclusions. We pride ourselves on being a customer-owned market that is open to all. To learn more about our Food for All program, please contact us directly by phone or email.
The Urban Greens Cooperative is founded and driven by the desire for equal access to food for all. We are excited to offer nutrition education, a guided tour of all the nutritious foods in the store and our community, and to promote responsible stewardship of the environment among our guiding principles. Thank you all for your constant support!
