Thrive Market is petitioning the USDA to provide online food stamps to the millions of Americans receiving assistance. This will increase access to healthier food, allow people to shop bargains and save money, save them on gas, make it easier for moms who won’t need to drive around town, and put more dignity into the process.
- Food stamps can only be used in brick-and-mortar stores. For the nearly 23.5 million people who live in food deserts, that means they options to use their food stamps are limited. They might live hours from the nearest SNAP-approved grocery store!
- If food stamps could be redeemed online–with same rules that apply when buying in stores–so many more individuals would have the opportunity to purchase healthier foods that suit their dietary needs.
- 74% of people who live at or below the poverty line have internet access, while only 30% have access to a car.
- We’re asking the USDA to make food stamps redeemable online–sign our petition at ThriveAction.org to help us improve food stamp usage and make healthier food more accessible to those who need it the most.
