A key benefit in NM is that most farmer's markets will double your SNAP for the purchase of fruits and veggies. They deduct the amount you choose, like $20 and then give you tokens for double that amount. Also, note that some libraries offer museum passes and veggie seeds for free. Ask the librarian at each branch.

Explora has a Pay What You Can Membership. Not free memberships. It is an Independent Non Profit Museum. It does have a program with Title 1 schools, where families are gifted a membership through their school. Please update your information. Because it is misleading.

I am very disabled, and have no family that drives in the area. I have a couple of friends that help when they can. I really, really wish there was a grocery delivery program that brings to your door. While I can still drive myself, and can get myself into a store to use the score scooters.... and the store staff gladly will take my purchase and load it into the car for me, I am oxygen dependent, and can't lug the groceries into my apartment from my car. Also, when I do go with someone to help me, I am exhausted and it takes me a few days to recover. While I can order things like paper towels to be delivered, I need a way to get my fresh produce, etc. delivered, too.

go to and see if there are any stores in your area that deliver. I am 65 and Albertson's delivers to the house for me. I hope this helps you. Stay safe.

Hi, Michelle! That is so frustrating. I'm sorry that you have to deal with this. It is a problem that they are trying to fix. Amazon and other retailers are working on pilot programs that will provide EBT delivery. They've had some setbacks but they're working on it! Hopefully we'll have a solution for you soon.
