Overview of NH & federal nutrition incentive programs. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) offers nutrition assistance to eligible, low-income individuals and can be an added revenue source for direct market farmers. As funding for SNAP is increasing, we hope NH Farmers will consider becoming an approved vendor to provide healthy, local food to SNAP customers.
Seacoast Eat Local is a Regional Lead in the New Hampshire Nutrition Incentive Network, helping to expand the reach of SNAP incentives (Granite State Market Match) at farmers’ markets and farm stands in the Seacoast region.
