Illinois has elected to participate in the SNAP Restaurant Meals Program (RMP) starting late summer of 2021. RMP allows specific qualifying SNAP households to utilize their SNAP Benefits to purchase hot meals at participating restaurants.
Your restaurant is eligible to apply to participate in the SNAP Restaurant Meals Program if it resides in Dewitt County, Franklin County or Cook County with the following zip codes (60619, 60620, 60628 and 60617) AND meets certain criteria. Illinois will be rolling the program out to selected areas over a period of time.
To verify if your restaurant is eligible and to submit a request to participate, complete a Request to Participate as a Restaurant in the SNAP Restaurant Meals Program form by September 18, 2021.
