DUE TO COVID: Unlimited MATCH continues
The money raised from our Raffles will be going toward our High Springs Farmers Market membership fee to participate in the Fresh Access Bucks/Feeding Florida program. This program is an asset to our community. It allows us to double SNAP/EBT participates transactions, up to an extra $40 free each market day.
Our partnership with FAB began October 5, 2017. Our market has distributed over $20,000 in free incentive tokens to feed so many families in our community. Just in the last 6 months, over $5,000 in incentive/free tokens have been distributed from our farmers market. It is a wonderful feeling to help feed local families, and at the same time helping our local farmers prosper as well.
It is our mission as a Farmers Market to help feed our community. We hope that our community feels the same way. One way to help, is to participate in our raffles, so we can raise our membership fee to continue to be a part of this wonderful program.
