Dollar-for-Dollar Match at East Palo Alto Farmers’ Market
Fresh Approach’s East Palo Alto seasonal Farmers’ Market started on Wednesday, April 17th. It will run from 11 am- 2 pm every Wednesday at the Ravenswood Family Health Center through November. The Market’s matching programs, Fresh Checks and Market Match, offer customers using CalFresh/EBT (formerly Food Stamps), Women Infants and Children (WIC) Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks, and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program senior checks a dollar-for-dollar match of up to $5 every week ($20 each month). To learn more about how to access the discount, visit the market and speak with one of the Fresh Approach staff. The goal of the market is to improve access to healthy, affordable, and local fruits and vegetables to low-income and food insecure communities in East Palo Alto. By providing a discount for eligible low-income families, the market seeks to improve health outcomes and stretch the food dollars of East Palo Alto residents. Please share the opportunity as widely as possible to your connections in EPA. It’s a great opportunity and we want everyone eligible to use it!
