Summit County WIC

Summit County Snap Program  

There is a $25 a day limit on the use of food stamps/PEBT cards at the Market as of July 1. However, the number of tokens returned will be doubled. So a person converting $25 food stamps/PEBT  into tokens will get fifty  and will have $50 of buying power at the Market.  You don’t have to live in Barberton to shop at the Market.  Ask for Kristy, the SNAP representative. The tokens do not expire.
