Farm to Family Program
The Our Farm to Family Program is an initiative aimed at making locally-farmed fresh fruits and vegetables accessible to every family, regardless of whatever financial challenges they may be facing.
How it Works
When someone enrolled in the program goes to the Union Point Farmer's Market, they can get their dollars matched up to $20 per market day using their EBT or debit card. If, for example, someone who is registered with the Food Pantry would like to spend $15 at the Market using their debit card, we will give them $30 in wooden tokens to use at the market. There is no stigma associated with the tokens as they are the currency of the market for anyone using a card for payment – not only Food Pantry guests.
Sign up for this program at any pop-up pantry site.
