SNAP -Because of generous donations from our sponsors the Great Barrington Farmers' Market offers SNAP matching benefits helping you to stretch your dollar at the market. SNAP is distributed as wooden tokens that can be redeemed for qualifying goods at the market.
WIC- WIC is a nutrition program that provides nutrition and health education, healthy food, breastfeeding support and other services free of charge to Massachusetts families who qualify.
Senior Coupons- Are also distributed to low-income elders in the summer. Massachusetts also serves low-income seniors who are unable to use the coupons due to access limitations by facilitating bulk purchasing of fruits and vegetables that are distributed to home bound elders with their regularly scheduled meals deliveries, or distributed at on-site meal programs.
