Sponsor Grow Food Northampton’s SNAP Match Program
Grow Food Northampton (GFN) works to increase access to local food for everyone in our community no matter what their economic situation. One of the primary ways we do this is by offering a dollar for dollar match to SNAP (food stamp) recipients at our farmers markets, helping 900 households each year to stretch their benefits on healthy, local products. In turn, 100% of these SNAP purchases support our local farms.
Sponsors are critical partners in providing SNAP Match funding for the farmers markets and receive significant exposure via year-round promotion. GFN’s two farmers markets, the downtown Tuesday Market and the Winter Market at the Senior Center, serve as cornerstones of our vibrant local food system and economy. Named “Best Farmers Market in the Valley” by Valley Advocate readers for nine years running, as many as a thousand shoppers visit Tuesday Market each week.
