How it works

  • Come to the GFN market table with your SNAP EBT card.
  • Swipe your card to use any amount of your SNAP benefits that you choose to purchase wooden tokens.
  • We will double up to $10 of your token purchase.
    • Example: You pay $10 using your SNAP, we hand your $20 in tokens.
    • Example: You pay $1.50 using your SNAP, we hand you $3 in tokens.
    • Example: You pay $15 using your SNAP, we hand your $25 in tokens.
  • You take your tokens to spend around the market on anything that is SNAP eligible.
  • If you need more tokens, come back! We’ll be glad to do another transaction, but match only up to $10 per week.

No, so most SNAP customers purchase HIP-eligible fruits and vegetables directly from farmers at the market until their HIP benefit is used up, and then use the SNAP Match to purchase non-HIP products or to purchase fruits and vegetables once their HIP benefit is exhausted.
