An opportunity for businesses and organizations to support our Low-Income Access Program
The Portland Farmers' Market Association's Low-Income Access Program (LIAP) fights hunger and promotes healthy eating by making the market accessible to shoppers using SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) and offering these shoppers bonus Maine Harvest Bucks (MHB) to buy more fruits and vegetables.
Program allows the market to accept SNAP transactions through a centralized information booth. To attract and further support shoppers using SNAP, the market offers a 1:1 matching nutrition incentive (MHB) in the form of tokens that can only be used to buy fruits and vegetables at the farmers’ market.
Over the past two years, Portland families facing economic hardship have received nearly $50,000 in free fruits and vegetables from our farmers’ market. Hundreds of families and seniors are purchasing more nourishing fruits and vegetables to live a healthier life.
Your tax-deductible sponsorship contribution helps the program operate year-round. Choose a sponsorship level that works for your budget from $1001-$10,000. Or become a Business Friend of the Market to make a contribution from $250-$1000.
