The United States Department of Agriculture Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families and provides economic benefits to communities. It is the largest program in the domestic hunger safety net,
and now the Historic McKinney Farmers’ Market is participating.
The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) works with state agencies, nutrition educators, and neighborhood and faith based organizations to ensure that those eligible for nutrition assistance can make informed decisions about applying for the program and can access benefits. Local and organic meat, dairy, honey and produce vendors offer their wares every Saturday at Chestnut Square, near downtown McKinney, and Thursday at Adriatica, on McKinney’s west side.
