Snap Matching Funds

Stretch your SNAP benefits by shopping for fresh foods at your local matching Farmers’ market! While most of Oregon Farmers’ markets accept SNAP benefits (also known as Food Stamps, EBT or Oregon Trail), many also offer a matching program, which doubles SNAP purchases dollar for dollar up to a certain amount — meaning you could get $10 worth of food for only $5 from your SNAP account.

To learn more about starting a SNAP incentive program at your local market, visit Oregon Farmers’ Market Association for a planning guide.

The Gorge Grown Food Network offers a SNAP match program at 3 farmers’ markets in the Hood River area.  Simply come to the information booth at any of these markets, swipe your EBT card, and receive $5 in FREE tokens to shop for fresh, local groceries every week!  The markets also accepts FDNP and WIC checks.
