More than 6,000 farmers markets and farmers across the country now accept SNAP. When farmers markets accept SNAP, it helps increase revenue for small and beginning farmers, while making it possible for low-income families to access healthy, affordable food: the ultimate win-win.
In this webinar, we discuss equipment and outreach essentials for SNAP Programs at your farmers market. We will provide information on how FMC’s Free SNAP EBT Equipment Program can help you accept (or continue to accept) SNAP benefits at your market, and highlight successful outreach initiatives to attract and retain SNAP customers.
These videos are a part of Farmers Market Coalition and Wallace Center at Winrock International's Market Management FAQ Series, launched in celebration of National Farmers Market Week 2010, and funded by USDA's Risk Management Agency.
