Hello!

My name is Kaitlyn Parks and I am the SNAP Outreach Coordinator at the Food Bank of North Alabama. Marcus Echols was so kind as to host me on his radio show program this morning and asked a question about eligible SNAP purchases. I wanted to share this information with you all. SNAP/EBT benefits can be used to purchase food producing plants items such as seeds, tomato plants, herbs, etc. It sounds like Lawrence County Exchange would be a great place for folks to purchase such items!

  • information about enrolling as a SNAP vendor- http://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/retailers-0

Best,
