Accepting Food Assistance Benefits to Increase Your Sales

This program is part of a 23-webinar Michigan State University Extension 2016 Beginning Farmer Webinar Series. 

Getting started with accepting food assistance benefits to increase your sales

Presenters: Amanda Shreve, MI Farmers Market Assn and Kendra Wills, MSU Extension

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.
