LET'S TALK ABOUT FOOD SECURITY
Had a lot of food? Have a lot left over?
Imagine struggling to have enough food for you and your family.
Since 2011, the Waltham Farmers' Market has increased access to healthy, local food in our community by enabling people to use their SNAP dollars at our market to purchase eligible food products.
We provide a dollar-for-dollar match program, giving up to $10 per EBT card holder, per week. In 2012, the year we began matching SNAP dollars, we doubled approximately $1,000 in SNAP sales. This past season, in 2019, the demand for our matching dollars rose to over $10,000. To fund this program's growing need in Waltham, we're increasing our fundraising efforts.
We need YOU. We invite you to support the SNAP match program at the Waltham Farmers' Market.
Your donation -- 100% of it -- benefits shoppers and our local farmers, as we are a volunteer-run organization. Waltham Fields Community Farm, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is our fiscal sponsor, allowing deductibility for gifts to the Waltham Farmers’ Market. We will send a receipt if you send a check, or you can print your PayPal receipt if you go that way.To donate please mail your check to:
