Did you know that you can your EBT benefits at local Maui Farmers Markets?
Why SNAP for farmers markets?
By accepting SNAP / EBT benefits, local Maui farmers markets create an environment where everyone is welcome, and where low‐income families and individuals can access fresh, healthy foods that are locally grown right here in Hawaii. In addition, accepting SNAP provides additional revenue for local Maui farmers/vendors by bringing federal SNAP dollars into our local economy.
Over $42 million in SNAP benefits are being spent in Hawaii each month. Imagine if just one dollar of every $100 of these was spent at farmers markets – it would mean a boost of $420,000 every month to local farmers and food producers.
