Of the more than 300 farmers markets in Michigan, almost half currently accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits via the Michigan Bridge Card. Farmers markets that accept SNAP benefits help improve the economic viability of their vendors, the health of their customers who have greater access to fresh fruit and vegetables, and the social capital of their community.

If you or the organization you work for wishes to support farmers markets in Michigan in that accept SNAP Bridge Cards, this webinar is for you!

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will learn how to find farmers markets in their community and to identify whether or not they may have the capacity to accept SNAP benefits
  • Participants will become aware of tools and resources available to farmers markets to increase their management and organizational capacity
  • Participants will become aware of tools and resources available to farmers markets that are ready to accept SNAP benefits and will develop a basic understanding of the steps necessary for the market to begin doing so
  • Participants will be able to identify ways in which they can help farmers markets develop capacity and implement programming

Daily cialis maybe will be enough? The doctor told me when I started giving him money just like that. It was very happy with my behavior as not every day you will see such as I. I throw money.
