USDA Coordinating WIC and SNAP at Farmers Markets Networking Calls

— Written By Joanna Lelekacs

USDA representatives coordinating WIC and SNAP at farmers markets across the nation are beginning to host networking calls on the first Tuesday of every month…time to be announced. According to Karen Stanley, NC Department of Health and Human Services, “In the past, topics have included presentations by merchant service providers, grant announcements or clarification on grants provided by USDA, peer to peer sharing from other states implementing SNAP and WIC programs, among other very helpful and informative topics.”

If you are interested in participating, you may reach out to Rogelio Carasco, USDA FNS Farmers Market Coordinator at Rogelio.Carrasco@fns.usda.gov so he can add you to his distribution list for future calls.

Thank you to Karen Stanley for sharing this opportunity.
