Hello food access friends,
It's the peak of the season, a great time to promote use of federal nutrition benefits at farmers markets. Many residents do not know that they can use SNAP-EBT and P-EBT benefits at farmers markets and receive free produce as a healthy food incentive. Families can get more delicious, nutritious vegetables and fruit and help local farmers too!
Please help spread the word to your community. Here are two suggested social media messages to share which can be paired with the attached graphics:
Message #1: For Parents and Families
Celebrate back to school with a visit to Dale City Farmers Market! The market welcomes both SNAP-EBT and P-EBT cards at the Market Token tent and will double what you spend. Use your benefits to get up to $40/week in FREE vegetables and fruit for your family! Dale City Farmers Market is open 8:00AM to 1:00PM every Sunday through November 30, and is located at the VDOT Commuter Lot off Dale Boulevard, 10490 Gemini Way, Woodbridge.
