Access to Healthy Foods and SNAP Program

At CFM, we believe that all people deserve to eat great, local food. That’s why SNAP benefits are exchangeable at the market for tokens. Come see what options the Columbia Farmers Market has available for you and your family!

Our sister organization, Sustainable Farms & Communities (SF&C) has been working to help alleviate hunger in our community, since 2011. The Access to Healthy Food (AHF) program helps low-income families with young children eat healthy food by matching SNAP and WIC benefits at the Columbia Farmers Market. Families that receive SNAP and/or WIC beneifits with children under the age of 19 can are eligible to double their benefits up to $25 each Saturday market.

How does AHF work?
Stop by the SF&C booth (up front on the northeast corner) and sign up.  Take your new AHF membership card to the Oasis (center of South aisle).  Swipe your SNAP card for any amount and receive up to $25 match in market tokens.  Spend tokens with CFM vendors for any SNAP eligible products!
