Food Stamps and One Harvest Partner Sites:
In order to accept food stamps for the purchase of food and not have the food delivered directly to the customer, the organization has to be a 501c3 non-profit. While One Harvest Food Ministries is recognized as a Non-Profit Food Ministry with the State of Georgia, it is not recognized as a 501c3 with the Federal Government.
This actually opens up an easier process for dealing with Food Stamps (EBT) for our partner sites.
Here is how it works:
o Go to this address to reach your local USDA field office: http://www.fns.usda.gov/fns-regional-offices
Since the SNAP program is a Federal Program run at a State Level, it is best to contact your local office to have them help you through the process.
You can find the application by going to: http://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/retailers-0. Be sure to include your articles of incorporation and the social security information of your trustees. The USDA requires that the responsible parties or "owner" of the organization place their information on the application in order to approve an application.
• The application takes about 30 to 45 days to process.
• Once the application is approved the partner site is sent an EBT reader from the USDA.
• Use your EBT reader like a credit card reader, but for the EBT cards only.
o The customer will swipe their card and it will either be approved or not.
o If it is approved the money for the purchase will be deposited into the partner site’s account via ACH.
• The transaction is treated and entered like a cash transaction from the customer when paying One Harvest Food Ministries.
ONEHARVEST strives to provide the highest quality food products. In the event the purchaser finds a product not to meet our standards, the unused portion of the product must be returned to the partner site for inspection. Any product not meeting our standards, as deemed by the Partner Site Director may be replaced or the percentage of the box paid for such product will be credited to the purchaser. All replacement items will be replaced by the following month's distribution.
