Emily Brown was a stay-at-home mom to care for her two young kids who were sick. Then her husband, Tim Brown, lost his job. While he was able to find another job quickly, it wasn’t enough to provide for their family.
Receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits during that difficult time period helped them get the healthy food they needed for their growing kids. Using the Double Up Food Bucks program at their local farmers’ market, they were able to try new fruits and vegetables, and Emily shares how much her family enjoyed that experience.
