SNAP at Farmers Markets
In 2008 the federal Food Stamp Program was renamed the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The name change more accurately reflects the mission of providing supplemental food and nutrition assistance to people with low incomes.
Farmers markets help increase public access to and consumption of fruits and vegetables.
NAPA assists Montana farmers markets in becoming authorized to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits.
Accepting nutrition assistance benefit programs at farmers markets help low-income families overcome the barriers of cost and availability of fresh fruits and vegetables.
