Food Assistance

We gladly accept SNAP benefits, WIC and Senior Vouchers. Starting in 2016, we are also delighted to participate in the Fresh Bucks program at our farmers market. This program matches SNAP benefits up to $10 with Fresh Bucks vouchers that can be used for fresh fruits, vegetables, and vegetable starts at the market.

The Lake Forest Park Market also works with partner organizations and agencies to distribute Market Bucks, a food assistance program made possible with funding from Edmonds Unitarian Universalists Congregation, Lake Forest Park Rotary, Lake Forest Park Garden Club, and donations from generous individuals like you. Market Bucks are distributed to individuals and families in need through a variety of partners including Hopelink, the Center for Human Services, the Shoreline Lake Forest Park Senior Center, the Dale Turner YMCA, and individual schools in the Shoreline Public Schools District.

To find out about food assistance eligibility for yourself, or for a friend or relative, contact the Center for Human Services at 206.440.7300, or Hopelink at 425.869.6000. Both have offices in Shoreline.
