We gladly accept SNAP benefits, WIC and Senior Vouchers at the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market!
NOTE: Starting in 2020, farmers markets outside Seattle are no longer eligible to participate in the Seattle based Fresh Bucks program. That means the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market will not offer Fresh Bucks.
We are pleased to announce, however, that we will be participating in a new statewide incentive funding program in lieu of Fresh Bucks. We are still learning more about how this program will be implemented and what the matching limits will be, but we will be sure to post updates as the details of the program are finalized.
The Lake Forest Park Market also works with partner organizations and agencies to distribute Market Bucks, our food assistance program made possible with funding from Lake Forest Park Rotary, Lake Forest Park Garden Club, and donations from generous individuals like you. Market Bucks empower kids, families, and seniors who struggle with food insecurity to purchase fresh and healthy food at the LFP Farmers Market.
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. By working with these invaluable community partners, we ensure that Market Bucks resources reach community members in greatest need.
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.
