Foot Print is certified as a farmers’ market, which means people can use their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or Electronic Benefit Transfer cards on the farm.
“To give access to them (customers) and meet them where they are, and how they buy their food—and they can now buy it from the farm here, and get it fresh and affordable—we hope (those aspects) make an impact on their health benefits, as well as let the people know where their food comes from and encourage them to look at growing some themselves, even if it’s in a box or if it’s in a tunnel or if it’s in a tower,” Cindy says. “… There are so many different things that you can use to grow just to get some fresh food, and until we (can) take back our health and be able to control some of the costs we’re dealing with, then we’re defeating our purpose for a healthier life.”
