SNAP Benefits Success at Farmer’s Markets

The end of farmers market season marked the beginning of a food revolution in Omaha. For the first time people receiving SNAP benefits, formerly known as Food Stamps, could use those benefits to purchase fresh, local food at three Omaha Farmers Markets.

And when a few customers were paying their bills, they said they would see the wait staff at their new location, as if the restaurant would be a few blocks away.

Todd and Mimi Buswell walked outside  after breakfast and both expressed indifference at having to go to a new location for brunch.

"As long as it's open, I'm there,"...

The 24-year-old’s potpie business turned cookie business turned non-profit baking classroom is something worthy of envy, replication and support nationwide.

Fresh out of college along with two others, Kelly founded The Educated Baker, a company with a social mission to help teach at-risk youth about business through baking. Originally the company intended to sell cookies and scones through retail and grocer outlets such as Hy-Vee, then use that money to support the mentoring program. But...
