Growing Green for Greens

A Collaboration with Neighborhood Markets Inc.

The Growing Green for Greens program enables customers at two of Greensboro’s local farmer’s markets to purchase healthy, locally-grown food using SNAP/EBT. Using a token-based system, customers can double the dollar amount of SNAP-approved foods that they can purchase at either market, allowing their limited funds to go twice as far. The program is supported by donations from individuals, churches and other local institutions. The grant from CCCC will allow the program to develop a more sustainable donor network and expand the awareness of the program, reaching more families experiencing food insecurity.
