Make sure your farm stand and farmers’ market staff are ready to accept SNAP this summer by having them attend this SNAP employee training.

Employees will learn SNAP basics including what EBT cards look like, what items are SNAP eligible, how to run a SNAP transaction, and the differences between SNAP and HIP. Attendees will come away knowing how SNAP works, how to answer questions around SNAP and HIP, and how to successfully and legally run a transaction on Conduent and TotilPay machines.

This training will also cover the SNAP protocols and rules that the USDA requires businesses to cover with their employees every year. A list of employees who attended the training can be provided to the employer, to satisfy the USDA’s requirement that SNAP trainings for staff be documented.

This training is for employees who will be processing SNAP transactions. Open to all staff of farm businesses or farmers’ markets that accept SNAP.

This workshop will be held on Zoom on Monday, June 3rd, 6:30-7:45pm.

Contact Jim Simon at jim@buylocalfood.org or 413-665-7100 ext. 18 with questions.
