Do You Know . . .
about SNAP at the ABFM?
The ABFM is in its 3rd season of accepting SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) funds for purchase of eligible foods at market. This year, use of SNAP benefits has grown noticeably. We are happy about this because it means that more people are able to secure fresh, nutritional foods for themselves and their families.
The ABFM sponsors a special offer for SNAP users: we'll double the value of (up to) the first $10 you spend in SNAP benefits at market. So if you decide to spend $15 at market, you'll actually get $25 to spend. This offer lasts until we distribute the allotted funds for the season. Please come to the ABFM stall at market for details.
