Our Mission

Beans&Greens helps drive demand for healthy local food among the residents in our community who need it most.

Beans&Greens encourages local shoppers who receive government food assistance to shop at local farmers markets. When shoppers use their SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) or SFMNP (Senior Farmers Market Nutritional Program) benefits at participating markets, Beans&Greens provides a dollar-for-dollar match on their purchases. The matching dollars make locally-grown produce more accessible and more affordable to those receiving assistance, while providing local farmers with new customers and revenue.

Our theme is nourishment for people and for our community. We aim to be a catalyst for “creating healthy commerce.”

For more information, see The Beans&Greens Match and Steps For Shoppers.
