The Celebration serves as a springboard to promote Cheshire Co. Conservation District collaboration with Picadilly Farm and the Winchester Farmers Market to provide EBT machines at the farm stand and at the farmers market. Additionally, SNAP recipients can "double up" their fruit and vegetable purchasing by using "Granite State Market Match" a matching fund. Information on these new avenues to making local food more affordable for all income levels will be announced, distributed and highlighted at the event.
