Did you know that up to 27% of San Antonio residents are dealing with food insecurity according to the city’s data. It’s no surprise that with summer rapidly approaching, many children will be left with less food due to not being in school with regulated meals. For this reason, Amazon Access has made buying food on Amazon easier and more affordable. Families are now able to not only purchase Amazon Prime for 50% off but they are able to use their EBT/SNAP cards to purchase items to be delivered right to their door.
Amazon Access was created to help residents in food deserts to get high quality but affordable groceries to feed their families. They believe that everyone should have equal access to healthy foods while also offering convenience at an affordable price point.
“Ways to save are especially important during the summer, when children who count on free and reduced-price school meals face the highest risk of hunger,” said Nancy Dalton, Head of Community Experience and Customer Marketing for Amazon Access “We’re proud to be teaming up with Chef Cortez to share information about Amazon Access resources like payment with SNAP EBT and Prime Access that make grocery shopping in Amazon stores easier and more affordable.”
Prime membership is not required but again, is offered with a hefty discount to qualifying persons. By going to the Amazon website: amazon,com/snap, you can peruse their discounts and offers. With the click of a button, you can be on your way to shopping for EBT/SNAP eligible groceries and items by adding your card information. Groceries can either be picked up or delivered depending on your preference. Don’t forget to sign up so when school ends, Amazon Access begins.
