SNAP Into Farm Fresh Foods is a health and nutrition program that provides education to SNAP-eligible participants and provides technical assistance to local farmers market managers and vendors seeking to become SNAP authorized and implement SNAP friendliness best practices.
The SNAP Into Farm Fresh Foods program provides education to SNAP participants using the Maine SNAP-Ed Farmers Market Program Toolkit, a one-time 30-60 minute lesson, to encourage SNAP-eligible individuals to use their federal benefits (SNAP/EBT, P-EBT, WIC, SFMNP coupons, etc.) to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at local farmers markets. The program is delivered both in the Northern and Southern Nevada region and the toolkit is modified to fit the unique needs in both areas.
The SNAP Into Farm Fresh Foods Program collaborates with local community partners including Nevada Hand, the Southern Nevada Food Council, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, Las Vegas Farmers Markets, fresh52 Farmers Market, Downtown 3rd Farmers Market, Shirley's Farmers Market, Reno Food Systems, Carson City Farmers Market, Dayton Farmers Market, Fernley Poolside Farmers Market, Hopes Clinic, Women and Children's Center of the Sierra and Reno Housing Authority, among others.
