“In the next month, the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace is looking to raise $2500 to give neighborhood families most in need a happier and healthier Thanksgiving – by shopping for their Thanksgiving dinner at the Columbia Heights farmers market.
The market gives out thousands of dollars every year in matching funds for people shopping at the market using nutritional assistance programs. But the demand always exceeds its ability to provide these funds, and this year the money ran out earlier than ever. $2,500 will give 50 families in need $50 to spend at the market on their Thanksgiving dinner.
A bonus is that the money will go directly to the farmers and small businesses that make the market so special.
