One in six of your neighbors is facing food insecurity this holiday season. You can put fresh local produce on their dinner table by giving to the Hollywood Farmers Market SNAP match fund.
The SNAP match began in 2010, and for the past nine years has distributed over $140,000 to thousands of recipients. For several years, the SNAP match was supported largely through federal funding. Unfortunately, this funding went away in 2018, and we now rely on local support to continue the program.
Today we are launching a fundraising campaign so that the program can continue next year. You can give to the SNAP match program at our crowdfunding page on fundrazr.com. If you prefer to make a contribution by cash or check, you can bring it to the farmers market information booth this Saturday or December 15th, and it’ll be added to our fundraising total.
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 the farmers market SNAP match today – because everyone deserves to eat healthy, fresh, local food.
