McDougal Orchards, 201 Hanson Ridge Rd, Springvale, ME 04083
Come join both new and experienced markets at our free Maine Harvest Bucks training in Southern Maine on Monday, April 9th. Maine Harvest Bucks is the flagship nutrition incentive program in Maine, and it serves as a powerful tool for communities to use in addressing food insecurity. Our trainings provide an overview of SNAP & Maine Harvest Bucks, and then dive into the nitty gritty of how to operate the program at your farmers’ market. The trainings are a great opportunity to network and learn from other markets, too, as they share their strategies in making the program work at their market.
It can take years for a market to find a suitable local partner and get systems in place in order to operate Maine Harvest Bucks. A great first step is to come to a training and learn about all that is involved to create a thriving program.
For any questions, or to RSVP, please email Jimmy DeBiasi- SNAP@mffm.org or call 487-7114.
