Focus will be on the federal and state food assistance programs at farmers markets that benefit seniors, women, infants and children and community members who use the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). Participants will learn how best to assist vendors, accept credit and debit cards, and how to successfully share program details with customers. Market coordinators from the Iowa City Farmers Market and the Winneshiek Farmers Market will be speaking about the programs and their effectiveness.
Jason Grimm, at the Iowa Valley RC&D along with Josh Dansdill of the Northeast Iowa RC&D will be hosting the workshop. The training will also be broadcast statewide for managers who want to participate remotely.
