Introducing Our New SFC Fotonovela!

We are excited to announce the release of our SFC Fotonovela, an educational tool designed with Spanish speakers in mind. SFC Farmers’ Market at the Triangle is the backdrop and stage for this colorful pamphlet that depicts how SFC Double Dollars can be used as a resource for families to access fresh and nutritious foods at over 14 locations around town.
