SNAP Benefits Accepted at the Co-Op

Help us spread the word!


Over the past month you may have seen Mountain People’s flyers in unexpected places. We’ve been advertising the little recognized fact that our store accepts SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) payments. According to the WV Department of Health and Human Resources, every year Monongalia County grocery stores collect $13 million in SNAP benefits from shoppers. We’re encouraging people to consider spending their SNAP dollars at the Co-Op. The Co-Op carries a large variety of affordable fresh produce and bulk items. As our SNAP sales grow so does our store.
