Our SNAP benefits program at the Saturday Farmers Market at Eastside successfully kicked off on November 18. SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits cover fruits, vegetables and herbs; cheese, eggs and other dairy products; meat products; bread and other baked goods; honey and maple syrup; jams, jellies and sauces; and seeds and plants that produce food. 

“By being a part of the SNAP benefits program, Urban Harvest is providing access to locally-grown produce, meats and more to the community at large,” said Scott Howard, President of the Urban Harvest Board of Directors.  “In addition, we are increasing a buying audience for our area farmers and vendors, thereby strengthening a local, sustainable food system.”

SNAP offers nutrition assistance to millions of low-income individuals and families and provides economic benefits to the communities.
