acceptance at their market. To support
community members, $190 in
SNAP EBT tokens were distributed
over three months, with $167 in token
redemption at the market - all
supporting local farmers who also
were impacted by the pandemic.
Using its land as a key resource,
Tunica distributed produce grown in
its onsite hoop house (greenhouse)
and community garden to those
in need through a communitysupported
agriculture program.
Produce was
planted, grown and
harvested by youth during out-ofschool
time programs, then shared
through boxes available for pickup.
SNAP recipients had first
access,
with remaining produce distributed
at the Paul Battle Arena through a
partnership with the Mid-South Food
Bank. During eight donation days,
270 community members received
15-pound boxes of fresh produce -
a total of 4,050 pounds of food. This
use of hoop houses and community
gardens continued through 2021, with
direct input from the community. To
ensure no food was wasted, the board
surveyed community members in the
fall of 2020, asking what produce
they would like to receive. Based on
the results, the requested seeds were
planted and harvested, reducing
the amount of food waste while
supporting the health and nutrition of
community members.
The relationship between parks
and recreation and farmers markets
is important and scalable for communities
across the country to support
more resilient communities. From
sustainable land management practices,
to carbon emissions reduction,
to equitable community agricultural
trade, to the advancement of the
