For a community to thrive, all of its members should have access to fresh food. Our markets are committed to providing healthy and local food to all of our neighbors and supporting the people who grow, make and bake food in our neighborhood.
You can help ensure that our most vulnerable neighbors can afford fresh and local foods while also supporting the producers by donating to our Green for Greens fund.
Every dollar you donate is used in our “Double SNAP” program. This allows us to accept SNAP/EBT (formerly known as food stamps) and DOUBLE them. So if a person has a $15 budget for food, you turn that into $30 to be used at our market. That $30 then is spent with our farmers and chefs to double the impact of your donation.
We also double food dollars for participants in the Guilford Community Care Network’s Orange Card program. Market tokens are redeemable for all SNAP approved purchases including produce, meats, eggs, dairy and baked goods. Families can double up to $30 weekly.
We know that our community relies upon this access and our local growers and bakers rely on all of our loyal customers to make ends meet as well.
The funds we raise here are used to run this program at both The Corner Market and The Grove Street People’s Market. Your donations are tax-deductible.
Thank you for kind support for the market community.
