What is FRESH MATCH?
Farmers on the Square supports our community in accessing fresh, local, products. The Cumberland Fresh Match Dollars program ensures that access means affordable access for all.
Through Fresh Match, shoppers at Farmers on the Square have their SNAP* benefits matched up to $20 per week per recipient and FMNP** benefits up to $30 per week. The additional money will be issued in the form of coupons to be used at the market. Established USDA rules regarding the types of food to be purchased with these benefits will remain in place. If you're interested in participating in FRESH MATCH, stop by the market information tent during market hours.
This season of the FRESH MATCH program is made possible by substantial support from the Partnership for Better Health, M&T Bank, Josiah W. and Bessie H. Kline Foundation, and the McCormick Family Foundation and generous community members.
Our annual Fresh Match fundraiser, Match Madness, begins March 1st!
