Participating Family Information

How it Works:

  1. Receive a Hoophouses for Health market card through your child’s Head Start or another participating community partner.
  2. Visit your local farmers market, and meet participating farmers. Look for Hoophouses for Health signs at the farmers’ stands.
  3. Use the market card and your State ID to purchase food or food-producing plants grown by participating farmers.
  4. Remember – funds expire after two months, and ask the farmer to email you a receipt.
