FINI RFA Out Now

USDA's National Institute of Food & Agriculture (NIFA) released the FY18 Food Insecurity and Nutrition Incentive (FINI) Program's request for applications, due December 13th. 


Strength in Snail Mail

In July, the Maine Federation of Farmers Markets and Maine Farmland Trust teamed up with the state's Department of Health and Human Services and SNAP-Ed to send postcards promoting the Maine Harvest Bucks program ($1-for-$1 SNAP match) to nearly 7,000 SNAP households in three communities with nearby markets. The results are already impressive.
