Role and Benefits
Participating Hoophouses for Health Farmers Markets serve primarily as hosts for participating vendors and families, but can help facilitate the program in the following ways:
- Assisting community partner organizations by helping distribute Market Cards to families as well as distribute funds into Market Cards.
- Directing families to participating Hoophouses for Health vendors and helping families with their Market Cards.
Hoophouses for Health doesn’t benefit only participating farmers and families. The program also aims to increase market attendance and awareness and use of other food assistance benefits available to families at the market.
