BEANS & GREENS PROGRAM STARTS UP ~ SNAP Dollars Doubled at Some KC metro Farmers' Markets

Hello, all. some of you may already have heard about this program, but I want to encourage each and every one of you to pass the information along to people and organizations who work with low income people and communities who would benefit from affordable, fresh, locally grown food.

The Beans&Greens Program is a program that will match SNAP card (food stamp card) purchases at a pilot group of farmers’ markets in the KC Metro area. If a person charges $5.00 against their SNAP card, they will be able to buy $10.00 worth of local produce. The participating markets this year are:
