CalFresh and Pescadero Grown! Tokens at the Market: To help fill the gap and get more farm-direct produce into the hands of our low income neighbors, Puente and many individual donors have partnered to create Friends of Pescadero Grown! a token matching program for recipients of CalFresh, WIC as well as 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. For more information about the program, click here. To enroll in the program, contact Lorena Vargas at 650.879.1691. For our friends that live outside the South Coast, your CalFresh card is welcome at the Market.
