Greensgrow’s SNAP Program Helps Low Income Philadelphians With Farm Shares

The Greensgrow Philadelphia Project will be putting efforts into its annual initiative, Local Initiative for Food Education (LIFE), to provide low income Philadelphians with access to locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Starting July 18th, the new “SNAP Box” program allows SNAP beneficiaries to use their benefits to pay for 5-8 produce items each week at a substantially reduced cost.

To enroll, email: SNAPbox@greensgrow.org or call the SNAP Box hotline at (267) 496-0148. Pickups for the SNAP boxes will run in three four-week sessions throughout the summer, with the other two start dates being August.
