Food Access


A win for families, farmers & communities

It is important to us that fresh, culturally-appropriate, healthy food is accessible, affordable, and available for all of our community members. Therefore, ORIS operates SNAP/EBT and Granite State Market Match accessible farm stands and markets in several neighborhoods where many new American families, as well as other low-income community members, reside. A variety of seasonal fresh produce is available at these farm stands and markets, including specialty ethnic crops grown by Fresh Start Farms’ new American farmers.

When you use SNAP/EBT at participating markets, the Granite State Market Match doubles your purchasing power. It’s easy! Simply shop with SNAP/EBT, and Granite State Market Match will double your money with tokens to spend on fruits, vegetables, herbs, seeds or seedlings.
