From the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace:
“The market may be closed for the season, but we’re not done yet! Our holiday fundraiser is in full swing, and your donation can help make sure low-income families in Columbia Heights can put healthy, local food on their tables.
Need another reason to give? We’re super excited to debut our brand new t-shirts, and we’re giving them away as a thank you gift for all donations of $50 or more!
1 in 5 Columbia Heights residents receive food stamps, and 100% of your donation will go to our farmers market matching funds program that helps these low-income families buy more healthy fruits and vegetables. The idea is simple, we double the amount they spend up to $10:
$5 in food stamps = $10 in fruits and vegetables
$10 in food stamps = $20 in fruits and vegetables
Thanks to the support of customers and neighbors like you, in 2014 we helped more low-income families than any other farmers market in Washington, DC. But with more families depending on us than ever before to put healthy, local food on the table, we need your continued support to make sure we can serve them in 2015.
Even if you can only give a little this holiday season, please donate today.”
