What if my SNP didn’t complete the Refrigeration Survey or my SNP indicated “no” to accepting refrigerated product, but I would like to participate in receiving refrigerated product?
If your SNP didn’t complete the Refrigeration Survey or your SNP indicated “no” to accepting refrigerated product you will have the opportunity to opt-in to receive refrigerated product in Phase Two. Please reach out to your local Community Development Coordinator for more details.
Can I opt-out of receiving refrigerated product although I indicated “yes” to receiving refrigeration product?
Of course! OSNP – SW is happy to work with SNPs that are no longer able to receive refrigerated product. If you are in this situation, please contact your local Community Development Coordinator for support.
Note: if your SNP opts out to receiving product you will be removed from all refrigerated product opportunities. For example: hard-boiled shelled eggs, yogurt, etc.
