  E.B.T. - EAT BETTER TODAY!
USE YOUR SNAP/EBT CARD AT PARTICIPATING
 FARMERS' MARKETS ON KAUAI!
 

EBTOn September 3, 2011. The Kaua’i Independent Food Bank (KIFB) launched the EBT Farmers’ Market Program — a new one-year pilot program that allows SNAP recipients to use their EBT cards at selected farmers markets across Kauai. 

SNAP recipients will be able to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, meat, eggs, and other eligible food items from market vendors at the following farmers’ markets on Kaua’i:

   
Koloa Sunshine Market - Mondays, 12:00pm – 2:00pm Koloa Ball Park (Knudsen)
Kapa’a Sunshine Market – Wednesdays, 3:00pm – 5:00pm Kapa’a New Town Park
Lihue Sunshine Market – Fridays, 3:00pm – 5:00pm Vidinha Stadium
Kauai Community Market – Saturdays, 9:30am – 1:00pm Kauai Community   College
Kukui Grove Sunshine Market- Mondays, 3:00pm-5:00pm
Hanapepe Sunshine Market- Thursdays, 3:00pm-5:00pm

Look for the EBT signs at the “EBT Market Manager Booth,” located within the selected markets. Your EBT card will be swiped and you will be given “EBT Tokens” that can be used at any of the participating markets. Tokens can be spent at any of the authorized vendor stalls clearly identified with an “EBT TOKENS ACCEPTED HERE” sign on their canopy.  To see how easy it is, click here for the video.

For more information about the EBT Farmers’ Market program (or if you are a vendor at one of the selected markets and would like to become an authorized vendor to accept EBT) please contact Donna or Frank by calling 808.246.3809 ext. 106 or 109, or email dmose@kauaifoodbank.org or franger@kauaifoodbank.org.
