My name is Rosa Escobar and I’m so happy to be starting my position as the new Midtown Farmers Market SNAP-EBT Outreach Coordinator. My goal is to continue to increase the usage of SNAP-EBT (food stamps) at the market and I hope to reach as many members of the community as possible.
I’m currently working for Bloomington Public Health as a WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor. I work for a Mother-to-Mother support program helping pregnant and breastfeeding moms and their babies to reach their goals. This summer, I will also be doing food demos at the Bloomington Farmers Market that reflect the cultural heritage of our community. I look forward to meeting and working with members of the Corcoran and surrounding communities of South Minneapolis.
