  4. The Rules • You do not need to sign up or apply to accept SNAP or Double SNAP benefits at the farmers market (the market has already gone through that process), but you should understand the programs and their rules • No change can be given for SNAP or Double SNAP tokens and tokens cannot be exchanged for money (it is considered trafficking!) • SNAP tokens and Double SNAP can only be used to buy certain items (details on next slides). If you have questions, ask your market manager

  8. A few suggestions • Prominently display your DPHHS sign that indicates you accept SNAP, WIC, and/or Senior coupons • Promptly return both of your SNAP and Double SNAP tokens to market employees at the end of the market to get reimbursed (there are a limited number of tokens so it’s best to keep as many in circulation as possible!) • Treat your SNAP, WIC, and Senior coupon customers just like any other customer
