SNAP at the Market

We love fresh, local food at the Champaign Farmers Market, and The Land Connection is committed to making this great food accessible and affordable to the whole community.
 
That's why in 2018 we offered three different ways to maximize Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits on fresh, local food during our market season.
 

This season we're offering several SNAP incentive programs.

  • Double Match - Every week we provide a double match up to $20 swiped. This means if you swipe $20 we will give you an additional $20.
  • Triple Match - On the second Tuesday of each month, we will give you a triple match up to $20 swiped. This means if you swipe $20 we will give you an additional $40.
  • End of Month Bonus - On the last Tuesday of each month, you can swipe any amount and we will give you an additional $10. That’s right, if you swipe $1, we will give you an additional $10! Plus, you still get your double match incentive.
 

New to the market in June 2019 is our WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) incentives. If you receive WIC or Senior FMNP coupons, we will provide a triple match for your coupons. For example, WIC FMNP recipients can receive up to $40 in additional incentives to spend at the market during the 2019 season.
