Alicia Zahn keeps track of purchases made through the Market Match program at the Modesto Certified Farmers Market in Modesto, Calif., on Thursday, Aug. 11, 2016. The federal-state program doubles the buying power for market patrons receiving benefits under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly called food stamps. They receive the green and red tokens for use at market stalls, after swiping a card issued by SNAP. The beige tokens in back are from Market Match, which matches the original amount.
