SNAP, FMNP, and SFMNP at the Farm Fresh Market:
Did you know that the farmers market at the Transit Station in Downtown Gettysburg accepts SNAP EBT cards? They also accept WIC Farmers Market dollars (FMNP), and Senior Market dollars (SFMNP). Even better: The market matches up to $15 daily in SNAP, and doubles all FMNP, and SFMNP benefits. So for $15 in SNAP benefits, you receive $30 in market tokens to shop for eligible foods at the market. If you have a $5 voucher from WIC or from the office for aging, the market will give you $10 in tokens. For more info click here.
Healthy Options is a food voucher program that offers individuals and families who do not qualify for SNAP, but are food insecure (within 160%-250% of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines), a set amount of coupons to use at the Farm Fresh Market during the summer, and at the Kennies Markets during the winter.

Gleaned produce is available to individuals and families who are "food insecure". This means that they don't have reliable access to enough affordable, nutritious food. We encourage "eaters" to take as much produce as they can use and share, but to be mindful of other "shoppers", and please don't be wasteful.
Gleaning Produce Stands are located at each of our SCCAP (South Central Community Action Programs) locations in Gettysburg and Chambersburg, PA. The produce stands are located at the back of the buildings by the food pantry entrances :
