Market Mommas Club
Market Mommas Club is a breastfeeding incentive program open to mothers and mothers-to-be who are breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed and currently eligible for Louisiana Medicaid. Moms are partnered with a breastfeeding peer group for support and the opportunity to become a Market Mommas Club member. Members receive $80 per month for up to six months or until the program’s end. This $80 incentive is redeemable in person at Crescent City Farmers Market and for home delivery through Top Box Foods Louisiana.
