Participants double their farmers’ market food dollars and get more fruits and vegetables

Thanks to a generous grant from the Ecology Center of Berkeley and its Market Match program, the CHC at Chico State is now proudly partnering with these farmers’ market organizations: 

Carefully targeted Market Match nutrition incentives help low-income Butte County residents stretch their CalFresh shopping dollars to afford more healthful, locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables. As a direct result, the program also supports small and mid-sized local farms and boosts the local economy.

Here's how to get twice as much healthy food for you and your family:

  1. Look for the Market Match sign at the market’s information booth
  2. Use your CalFresh and have your benefits doubled*
  3. Buy more fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables

*CalFresh is matched dollar for dollar, up to a maximum amount, per family, per market day.

A continuación, le explicaremos como obtener el doble de alimentos saludables para usted y su familia:

  1. Busque por el símbolo de Market Match en el puesto de información del mercado 
  2. Utilice sus beneficios de Estampillas de Comida (o CalFresh) y haga que sus beneficios se dupliquen
  3. Compre más frutas y vegetales frescos cultivados localmente

*CalFresh es igualado dólar por dólar, hasta una cantidad máxima, por familia, por día de mercado
