Indiana Farmers Market/Stand/CSA SNAP Matching Grant Program

The St. Joseph Community Health Foundation is currently offering grants to Indiana farmer's markets, farm stands, CSAs (community supported agriculture), and mobile farm markets to start or expand a SNAP matching program. SNAP stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and was formerly known as food stamps. Benefits are provided on what looks like a debit card (called Hoosier Works) through an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) system. Indiana SNAP Matching Program grant recipients (hereafter grantees) will provide customers who pay with SNAP a $1 for $1 match up to $20 per day on all purchases of fruits and vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, and edible plant-starts. The $1 for $1 match may be provided via tokens, paper vouchers, etokens or other; it is recommended that these be offered in $2 increments. If tokens or vouchers are used, they should include the name of the market where they are issued because they can only be redeemed at that market. Farm stands that have only one vendor and sell only fresh produce may offer an immediate 50% off (up to $20 per day in incentive) at the point of sale to customers paying with SNAP and therefore do not need to use vouchers or tokens. For more information, please visit Double Up Indiana.

Educator Wellness Toolkit: Leading a School with Wellness at the Forefront

In Indiana, much attention has been paid to the importance of educator wellness and ways in which educators can improve upon their wellness by promoting positive relationships with students and staff, creating effective classroom climates, and managing a work-life balance. The Indiana Department of Education and several other state agencies released a toolkit for educational leaders to create a culture of wellness within their buildings and districts.

When educators are well, students are much more likely to thrive. School leaders are in a position to create policies, environments, infrastructure and climates that motivate and enable school staff to be well. This toolkit highlights powerful practices, available support and case studies in which school leaders put educators in the forefront of a topic often focused on students.
