A long running program administered by The Food Trust in Philadelphia is being adopted at the Ambler Farmers’ Market. While the market already accepts SNAP benefits (food stamps), the Food Buck program incentivizes SNAP shoppers to use their benefits at the farmers’ market even more.
From the Ambler Farmers’ Market:
For every $5 spent using SNAP at participating markets, customers receive a $2 Philly Food Bucks coupon for fresh fruits and vegetables, increasing the purchasing power of lower income farmers’ market shoppers by 40%.
The program begins at the market on opening day, May 6th. For more information, click here.
