Adena Health System has partnered with the Chillicothe Farmers Market to allow more families in the community to access healthy locally grown food. Those who qualify for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) are encouraged to bring their Ohio Direction card to the Chillicothe Farmers Market, and they will be eligible to scan at least $10 in Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) tokens and also receive additional $10 in Fruit and Veggies Perks tokens.
Adena Dieticians have also created healthy recipe cookbooks that include meals with ingredients available at the farmer’s market.
The Chillicothe Famer’s Market is located in the parking lot of the Ross County Service Center, 475 Western Avenue and is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. May through October.
To receive tokens, participants need to bring their Ohio Direction Card to the market tent the day of the event.
