Pescadero Grown! Tokens and CalFresh debut at market

To help fill the gap and get more farm-direct produce into the hands of our low income neighbors, Puente and many Friends of Pescadero Grown! have partnered to establish a token matching program for  CalFresh, WIC  and other  low income participants that reside in Pescadero, La Honda, Loma Mar,and San Gregorio.

Pescadero Grown Tokens may be used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables at the Pescadero Grown Certified Community Farmers’ Market. They work just like cash. If you receive WIC, CalFresh (food stamps) or your income is below the 133% FPL, Puente will match a maximum of $10 worth of your purchases each week if you enroll in the program.
