GFM, and its sponsor, Ashtabula Local Food Council, work actively to create access to local, fresh foods in Ashtabula County. Part of that mission includes accepting WIC and SNAP at area farmers markets, and for the first time in our county, Geneva Farmers Market will be accepting SNAP this summer. This is an amazing way to get fresh foods, and a vital part of creating a sustainable food network.
Typically, farmers markets are able to access funding to provide free equipment for accepting SNAP, but this year’s funding is unavailable. We need your help to purchase the equipment necessary to accept SNAP at our market.
To make this process easier, we’ve set up an online donation tool through ALFC, found here: http://www.ashtabulafood.org/donate-gfm/
Any donation over $25 will earn you a listing on our sponsorship board, viewable all summer long at the market. Each donation will get a personal shoutout right here on Facebook – your community will know where your heart is! Please donate today!
