Help Needy Neighbors with SNAP Match

With spring comes the excitement of the widely anticipated opening of
the Farmer’s Market on May 14. Yet for some families, their ability to purchase this fresh, local, healthy produce at our local market is very limited.

By contributing to the Union Square Main Streets SNAP match campaign, you will help to ensure that struggling families are able to double their purchasing power from $10 to $20 every Saturday of this year’s Market season.

To find out more about how your donation will help, how the SNAP match works, and to make your donation, click here.
