With Google searches, members of the public may find the phone number of any WRO staff person. While we cannot control who calls us, we can control how we respond. The information below provides guidance on what to do when the public calls. Ask the caller: Are you calling about your SNAP benefits and application or are you a SNAP retailer calling about your retailer authorization or EBT terminal? If: SNAP benefits or application then continue with SNAP Client Complaints below SNAP retailer authorization and\/or SNAP EBT terminal then skip ahead to the last page for Retailer Application \/ EBT Terminal Issues SNAP Client Complaints (for all WRO Staff) Thank the client for calling and show empathy for his or her concern. Tell the client you cannot access his or her records but can pass along information to the appropriate state contact.

Question: I’m a SNAP authorized retailer and am interested in ways to continue to get food to my customers in light of the social distancing recommendations related to COVID-19. What are some options for me? Answer: There are several options that would allow for a retailer to continue to get food to its SNAP clients in light of the social distancing recommendations related to COVID-19. These include: SNAP client placing their order online or over the phone and picking it up at the store. If the store has a wireless POS the customer would be able to complete the transaction without having to leave their car. SNAP client placing their order online or over the phone and having the order delivered to their designated delivery address. The transaction can be completed using a wireless POS. SNAP client placing their order online or over the phone and designating a person to pick the order at the store using the clients EBT card. The transaction can be completed, using the SNAP clients EBT card, in the store or by using a mobile POS device outside of the store. As a last resort, if you do not have a mobile POS, under these extreme circumstances you can complete a manual voucher which the SNAP customer would need to sign in person at the point the voucher is authorized. Information regarding manual vouchers, including how they are completed and cleared, can be found at: https:\/\/fns-prod.azureedge.net\/sites\/default\/files\/snap\/Manual-Voucher-Process.pdf Manual vouchers must be completed when the client is present to sign it, a retailer is not allowed to obtain the EBT card number remotely (e.g. call or email) and complete the voucher without the client present. Retailers should never accept payment by obtaining a clients’ EBT card number and PIN over the phone. https:\/\/www.fns.usda.gov\/snap\/online-purchasing-pilot https:\/\/www.fns.usda.gov\/snap\/online-purchasing-pilot https:\/\/fns-prod.azureedge.net\/sites\/default\/files\/snap\/Manual-Voucher-Process.pdf Page 8 10\/20\/21 WRO SNAP Staff List Name Email Phone Albert, Elizabeth (Libby) [email protected] 415-705-1359 Baker, Dawn [email protected] 415-633-5504 Bourne, Jacqueline [email protected] 415-293-3717 Coatney, Rodney (Rod) [email protected] 415-228-3110 de Barros Barreto, Jessica [email protected] 415-645-1921 Gaines, Andrea [email protected] 415-705-1342 Gippson, D’Artagnan D’[email protected] 415-705-1365 Gonzalez, Jodi [email protected] 415-705-1358 Ihm, Young [email protected] 415-645-1909 Jones, Clay [email protected] 415-645-1913 Keller, Tiyanika [email protected] 415-645-1935 Lancaster, Curwin [email protected] 415-705-1353 Levandowski, Jason [email protected] 415-228-3108 Lewis, Pandora [email protected] 415-293-3722 Manaoat, Jemellee [email protected] 415-645-1908 Page, Rachel [email protected] 415-645-1940 Smith, Barbara [email protected] 415-705-2229 Solomon, Brian [email protected] 415-744-3643 Stein, Ernest [email protected] 415-705-2333 Strong, LaKisha [email protected] 415-645-1902 Stupi, Megan [email protected] 415-645-1923 To, Duy [email protected] 415-437-8803 Tobin, Charles [email protected] 415-645-1927 Utuchian, Barbara [email protected] 415-645-1939 Williams, Bradford [email protected] 415-744-3801 mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] mailto:%[email protected] SNAP Org Chart 2021-10-12 internal SNAP Chart 2021-09-26 internal final.vsdx Page-1 SNAP Responsibilities 2021-10-20 internal ”
