Hellmuth & Johnson attorney Brendan Kenny won reinstatement of an Asian-owned market’s participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), following the United States Department of Agriculture’s disqualification of the market based on alleged “trafficking” of SNAP benefits.
When the USDA disqualifies a SNAP retailer from participating in SNAP, the results can be devastating for the retailer and the local community. On July 22, 2022, Mr. Kenny secured for his client, an Asian-owned market serving a predominantly Asian community, the reinstatement of its ability to participate in SNAP. This not only saved the market from shutting its doors, but aided the economically disadvantaged community it serves.
