"Purchasing produce in a grocery store can wipe-out a good portion of the food budget for the week," says Andrea, a Mulberry Street Farmers Market patron. "With the 2 for 1 program [at farmers markets], I am able to stay within the weekly grocery budget, purchase better tasting fruits and vegetables, and spend quality family time with my daughters."
WWG believes that all Georgians should have access to wholesome, locally-grown food. By doubling each Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, aka Food Stamp) dollar spent at our sustainable, producer-only farmers markets, we increase access to good food while supporting sustainable farmers and contributing to the local food economy.
Through November, as a part of our Donate2Double campaign, a generous matching funder will double your gift to WWG. This means a gift of $100 will double to $200! Through WWG’s Double Food Stamp Program, that translates to $400 worth of wholesome, healthy, Georgia grown food for low-income shoppers at farmers markets.
