Meet 2018 Direct Ag Summit Speaker, Corey Chatman:
Corey Chatman is a program manager at the Experimental Station, a not-for-profit incubator of innovative cultural projects and small-scale enterprises located on the south side of Chicago. He began working there on healthy food access projects in the early part of 2010. One of his first projects involved the expansion of SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) access at Farmers Markets in Illinois. To that end Corey began working with the Illinois Farmers Market Association to support markets in Illinois with education, resources, and best practices for programs like SNAP access.
Corey currently manages 3 programs at Experimental Station: the City of Chicago’s Farmers Market EBT program, the LINK Up Double Value Coupon Program, and SNAP Support grants.
