Help people use their EBT at Central Market!

Give back this new year - volunteer for food access at Sacramento County farmers' markets!

Sign up today for our upcoming volunteer orientation on Sunday, January 23, from 9am to 10am. Orientation is in person at Sacramento's Central Farmers' Market at Arden Mall.

Alchemist CDC facilitates the use of CalFresh (SNAP/EBT) benefits and bonus Market Match incentives at Sacramento County farmers' markets. We need your help to connect communities to fresh, healthy, local food.

Volunteer duties:

  • Assist in processing SNAP transactions
  • Distribute EBT and Market Match vouchers
  • Assist in redemption of vouchers from farmers’ market vendors

After you complete the volunteer orientation, you are welcome to volunteer at any of our participating farmers' markets:
  • Florin - Thursdays in South Sacramento
  • Country Club Plaza - Saturdays in Arden
  • Laguna - Saturdays in Elk Grove
  • Midtown - Saturdays in Midtown
  • Sunrise Station - Saturdays in Rancho Cordova
  • Natomas (seasonal) - Saturdays in Natomas
  • Central Arden Mall - Sundays in Arden
  • Capitol Mall (seasonal) - Wednesdays in Downtown Sacramento


Due to the close proximity of volunteers and staff for the length of the farmers' market day, all volunteers must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination and are required to wear face masks while at the CalFresh booths.


Our CalFresh community is as diverse as the city of Sacramento! We are looking for bilingual volunteers who can communicate in Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese.


Sign up today by emailing Charlie, Program Coordinator, at charlie@alchemistcdc.org. Show Less
