Help us meet the challenge!
With generous assistance from Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, GardenShare has been doubling SNAP benefits at Farmers Markets in St. Lawrence County this season. Individual donations from the beginning of the Farmers Market season supplemented the grant funds.
What a win-win program it has been! Low-income families get access to fresh, healthy, locally-grown produce and the money stays with local farmer in the local economy.
The effort has been so successful that GardenShare has run out of grant funds before the farmers market season ends!
We don't want to stop the program, so a generous, anonymous individual has committed to donate $1,000 if we can raise just $500 from others!
Will you help? Your gift of any size will make a difference and will be matched 2 for 1 by the challenge!
