What exactly is local food accessibility?

 

―

It sounds big— but breaking it down is easy. Our goal at the Pauls Valley Farmers market is to increase the amount of local food that gets into the homes of all of the people in our community. This is a county wide goal regardless of income level which is why we partner with different organizations throughout the state to accept SNAP benefits.

 
 

Our Goals in 2020:

 

1.

Increase SNAP Redemption by 100% in the 2020 Market Season

 

2.

Partner with ONIE and Hunger Free Oklahoma to continue marketing that we accept SNAP and participate in Double Up Oklahoma, which turns every dollar spent wit SNAP at a farmers market into two dollars.

 

3.

Ensure that all vendors are registered with Chickasaw Nation so that they can accept vouchers and increase marketing with Chickasaw Nation to let people know that we accept the vouchers!
