Organic Agriculture March 22, 2013|Print

About the Webinar

Trying to figure out how to accept SNAP/EBT payments (formerly food stamps) has been a challenge for trailblazing CSA farmers and their partner organizations because of a general lack of information on the topic. In this webinar, we will demystify the process by explaining how SNAP rules apply to CSA farms, showing you ways to easily integrate SNAP payments, providing tools to find and retain SNAP members, walking you through a hassle-free application to become SNAP-authorized, and describing how to get the technology to accept EBT cards.
