Each year, more than 1.6 million Michiganders receive SNAP support to purchase the food they need to keep their families healthy (formerly called Foodstamps and now distributed on the EBT Bridge Card). Being able to accept food assistance benefits like SNAP not only means you are expanding access to healthy, local foods for people in your community, but it also means you have the ability to increase your market sales.

Attend this webinar to learn how your farm can become authorized to accept benefits, what equipment will be needed and how you can obtain it, and tips and techniques for promoting that your farm participates.
