Are you passionate about making connections in your community? Want to help families stretch their resources while learning more about locally grown produce? The Community Food & Agriculture Coalition (CFAC), with support from the Lower Flathead Valley Community Foundation, is hiring 4 Outreach Team Members to promote the Double SNAP Dollars program on the Flathead Reservation! Work up to 10 hours a month, build your own schedule, perform outreach activities of your choosing, and receive $15 per hour.
Double SNAP Dollars (DSD) is an opportunity for SNAP recipients to double their SNAP dollars at participating farmer’s markets and farm shares. For every $1 of SNAP spent, SNAP customers receive an extra $1 to spend on local fruits, vegetables, seeds, and bedding plants. DSD allows SNAP customers to stretch their food budgets while also supporting their local farmers. A win-win!
