    Double Your SNAP Dollars

    A partnership between Artisan Alley Farmers Market in DeLand and Fresh Access Bucks Florida allows you to double your SNAP benefits. The farmers market now accepts SNAP benefits and matches the SNAP dollars spent (up to $40) with Fresh Access Bucks. That means if you purchase $40 worth of SNAP benefits, Fresh Access Bucks will match that $40 and give you a total of $80 to spend. The Fresh Access Bucks tokens can only be used on fresh fruits and vegetables, where as the SNAP tokens can be used on meats, seafood and other SNAP eligible items. For more information, click here.

    Trailblazers To Go

    Dear Parents,

    The safety of our children is always most crucial. We recognize that all parents have busy schedules. We all have to face high gas prices. These are just a few reasons we created our Curbside To Go service. So that Trailblazers To Go runs smoothly, we ask that you follow these guidelines.

    • If you need to escort or help your child carry items, please park in the bus parking lot. If you need to communicate with the office staff or leave a note for the teachers, please use the bus parking area. The teachers’ primary duty during pick up and drop off is supervising the children and keeping them safe. You may use e-mail or phone to contact our dedicated teachers to schedule teacher/parent conferences.
    • Only the right traffic lane will be used for drop off and pick up. All children should be entering and exiting the vehicle on the right passenger side only. This insures our children’s safety since the left lane, which is used for driving through, is not required to stop. Insure your own safety by not exiting and walking around your car.
    • Always pull forward as far as possible when dropping off your children or picking up your children. In the afternoon be sure that your child's curbside to go pick up number is hanging on the rear view mirror for teachers to see. Curbside numbers are available in the front office.
    • When dropping off your child, please make sure he/she is clear of the car and on the sidewalk before driving forward. Children often forget items and take a step back to get them or talk to you.
    • Visually check both lanes when attempting a lane change after drop off and pick up. Many cars and individuals will be entering and exiting the area. This measure could prevent accidents and damage. Use common courtesy and respect when dealing with others.

    We hope Trailblazers To Go will insure everyone’s safety, save you time, and gas money. We thank you in advance for your help and cooperation.
