While we all want to do our part to flatten the curve and practice social distancing, it is a huge financial burden for many families to stock up and stay put for an extended period of time.
Expensify.org will reimburse families on SNAP benefits to purchase additional essential goods.
The details are on expensify.org, but basically you need your receipt and can get up to $50 back. I know that is not enough to stock up for a family, but every little bit helps during all this uncharted territory.
Please share this information with anyone who may benefit.
