The SNAP & Link Match program helps low income families access fresh, healthy foods through local farmers markets. For each dollar a SNAP recipient spends with their LINK card, they receive a matching coupon for fresh fruits and vegetables- essentially doubling the purchasing power of the most vulnerable among us and connecting them with healthful, nourishing food.
This year we expect a surge of need as so many more families will qualify for SNAP (aka Food Stamps). In addition, two new markets would like to begin offering the program- bringing the total to 5 markets in Southern Illinois. Please, give any amount you can to support this program.
