WOONSOCKET, RI - MARCH 01: Jose Rivera takes a smoke break as he waits for a just-arrived shipment of food to be unloaded before he sorts and places items on the store shelves at International Market. He gets part-time work at the beginning of the month at the store when it's very busy with customers on the SNAP program (food stamps). 92% of the sales at the store come from the program. Brightly colored items are popular with locals. Many families and individuals in Woonsocket, Rhode Island are needy and take part in the SNAP (food stamps) program. Photo by Michael S.
