DOUBLE your SNAP dollars when you shop at the Farmers’ Market or Mobile Market!
Here’s how it works:
Once signed up for the SNAP program (which you can do through Gigail, our SNAP Outreach Coordinator), you become eligible for HCFM’s SNAP-Matching. This means that for every $1 you spend at the Farmers’ Market or Mobile Market, you’ll receive $1 (up to $40), plus an additional $10 to spend on fruits and vegetables if you put at least $5 on your EBT card. Take full advantage of the program and you can turn $40 into $90 at the Market each week! Money is in the form of tokens that do not expire.
What our SNAP Shoppers are saying…
The Double-SNAP program at the Market was a blessing that transformed my family’s diet. At a time when we were only receiving $36/week for food from SNAP we were able to buy around 50% of our household’s food at the Market including apples, cauliflower, bell peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, corn, yellow squash, carrots, green beans, peaches, cucumbers, a loaf of bread, eggs, and sometimes ground pork sausage. Along with the healthy food, at the Hub City Farmers’ Market I found a friendly social atmosphere with kind vendors and, unlike some of my experiences at grocery stores, fellow customers at the Market never treated me differently.
