Food Stamp/SNAP Users Can Now Earn Philly Food Bucks at Area Farmers’ Markets

The Food Trust believes that access to good food should be a universal right. That’s why they’ve worked diligently to bring SNAP* machines to all their farmers’ markets, so that users of that program can use their benefits to purchase fresh, local fruits and vegetables. What’s more, for every $5 that a SNAP user spends at a farmers’ market, The Food Trust will give them an additional $2 in Philly Food Bucks with which they can buy even more produce. For more details on this program, watch the video above.

*SNAP is the current name for the program once known as food stamps.
