“Last month the Petworth Community Market (PCM) concluded another successful season full of delicious food, great music, and good times with neighbors. In celebration, join PCM and neighbors at the End of Season Celebration and Fundraiser on Wednesday, October 19th from 6 PM to 8 PM at the Island Cafe (829 Upshur Street, NW).
The season has much to celebrate with the introduction of the acceptance of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, a SNAP matching program, an expanded season with new hours, and the offering of several winter CSA programs by participating PCM vendors (details below).
The End of Season Celebration is an opportunity to reflect on the market’s success and to begin seeking support for the funding of our 2012 SNAP matching program. The program currently offers a matching contribution of 50 cents for every dollar of SNAP benefit in an effort to make the offerings of the market more attractive to all families throughout the community. Through the proceeds of the celebration, PCM plans to expand to a full dollar-for-dollar match. The fundraiser will ask for a suggested donation of $10 at the door and Island Cafe will donate 10% of bar proceeds to PCM. Happy Hour drink specials will be in effect and tasty bites courtesy of Island Cafe will be available.
Date: Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Time: 6-8 PM
Location: Island Cafe, 829 Upshur Street, NW“
