Since the pandemic began, food insecurity is on the rise nationwide. At Hollywood and Lloyd Farmers Markets, SNAP usage has increased by 40% this year! Your help is needed now more than ever. We have never seen this kind of need before.
For the past ten years Hollywood Farmers Market has distributed over $220,000 to thousands of SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) recipients. This has been made possible by the generosity of many individual donors.
Every $10 you give means one more family can buy fresh, local fruits and vegetables. That means more food in the pantry. That means more sales for our family farmers. And it means a healthier community:
“This program is actually helping my kids grow! They have eaten more fruit this summer than ever before.”
“I feel much more connected to the community and to the food I eat when I buy fresh and local from the farmers market. Thank you!”
Make a gift to Double Up Food Bucks today – because everyone deserves to eat healthy, fresh, local food.
