Community advocate Tanya Denise Fields, of the Black Feminist Project and Mama Tanya’s Kitchen, partnered with Amazon to share how a new offer is helping families on government assistance programs access food in an easy, safe way. Tanya is based in the South Bronx, a vibrant and resilient community all too familiar with having to make a lot with a little. She does critical work with others in the community to combat food insecurity and hunger. And, as a mom of 6, she knows how challenging it can be to make time to prepare nutrient-dense, yummy meals at an affordable cost.
Now more than ever, it is essential to find ways for individuals and families to have easy and convenient access to food – no matter where they live or their income level. In fact, Amazon is working to make groceries more accessible for all customers and SNAP EBT recipients can now use their benefits to order groceries online. If you are a SNAP EBT recipient, you can use your benefits on Amazon.com and Amazon Fresh to access a vast selection of shelf-stable pantry items, as well as fresh produce and proteins, delivered right to your door – with no membership or minimum spend required.
We are all looking for a grocery option that is convenient, safe and affordable. Amazon’s grocery offerings and discounts for SNAP EBT customers does just that. For more information and to enroll your benefits visit Amazon.com/SNAP.
