HEALTHY FOOD IS FOR EVERYONE
All SFC Farmers’ Markets accept Lone Star SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - formerly known as food stamps), WIC (Women, Infants and Children) and FMNP (Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program) benefits. These benefits are DOUBLED through our Double Dollars project.
Double Dollars was the first of its kind in Texas. This project matches up to $30 in SNAP, WIC and FMNP benefits that can be used to purchase fruits and vegetables.
“When I make my caldo de res, I can smell the scent of fresh cilantro all around my house. I notice it much more than when I buy cilantro from the store. It’s much better flavor!” - Adelina, Farm Stand at Sierra Ridge Apartments, February 2016
"I’ve been able to go off of my [over the counter] digestive medication because of the better access to produce that I have now." -Dedra, Farm Stand at Cunningham Elementary, April 2016
Our Community Outreach team builds and strengthens relationships, leverages partnerships and supports empowerment within communities to improve food security in central Texas.
