The SFMNP increases our community’s intake of fruits and vegetables; expands the use of local farmers markets, farm stands, and community-supported agriculture programs; and increases sales of Washington grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Eligible low-income seniors receive one $80 benefit card to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at participating farmers markets and farm stands.
