Folks that use their EBT card will actually double their money - $10 swipe becomes $20 in farmers market money!!!
Maybe good for some families you know.
So, here is the way the system will work:
1. A customer will purchase a quantity of $1 value wooden nickels from the AFM booth.
2. Through our partnership with Wholesome Wave Georgia, we will double their EBT dollars, so a $10 swipe becomes $20 in tokens.
3. The customer will spend their tokens as they see fit. There are some guidelines that must be followed when a patron uses EBT tokens to purchase food items - please read below:
Patrons CAN use EBT tokens to buy:
-- breads and cereals;
-- fruits and vegetables;
-- meats, fish and poultry; and
-- dairy products.
-- Cold deli foods like salads and sandwiches, to be eaten at home.

-- pet foods;
-- soaps, paper products; and
-- household supplies.
