Community Food and Agriculture Coalition of Missoula County

  • Project Title: Double SNAP Dollars
  • Contact Name: Kim Gilchrist, Food Access Program Manager
  • Location: Missoula County, MT
  • Program Overview:
    The Community Food and Agriculture Coalition of Missoula County works to increase the amount of local food in western Montana. The coalition helps preserve farmland, train beginning farmers, and make locally grown food more easily accessible. The coalition recently implemented a Double SNAP Dollars program to help SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) users access more fresh, local produce. All participating organizations saw increased sales from SNAP participants, and new customers are now able to purchase locally grown produce. The coalition plans to continue this program and is working closely with local organizations, national organizations such as Wholesome Wave, and SNAP users to improve and expand the program.
