Finding FoodShare benefits at farmers markets

Extension’s FoodWIse program now has a resource for anyone in the state to see what farmers markets in their area utilize FoodShare benefits such as SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) and EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer). In Wisconsin, SNAP is called FoodShare, and its users access their benefits using EBT or QUEST Card. SNAP provides nutrition assistance to people with low incomes and can help with nutritious foods for a better diet.

Think of your strength. Big changes tend to challenge and test you, but it’s likely that you’ll grow from all of the things that you’re facing. Remind yourself as often as possible that you are strong and capable and can make it through whatever challenges you’re facing (and that you’ve made it through some tough changes in the past). Maybe even say it out loud to yourself to really let it sink in. With each passing day, you’re building resilience.

Make plans. It’s okay if you aren’t an incredibly organized person, but when you’re processing big changes, it can be helpful to focus on planning. You don’t have to stick to your plan perfectly; just starting small with what your day or week is going to look like can help get rid of that uncertainty that comes with change.

Tune into the good. No matter what kind of change has come into your life, there is most likely some grief that coincides with processing it. Even a seemingly good change like getting a new job can have you grieving the day-to-day interactions you had with coworkers where you used to work. Let yourself grieve, but also try not to get stuck spiraling into the fear, anguish, and negativity that those changes may bring. Instead, try and retrain your brain to think of the positives in your life by doing things like practicing gratitude, focusing on the small things that bring you joy, or reframing challenges as opportunities.
