A "To Market, To Market" Program Fundraiser
Enjoy a dinner at a participating eatery and a portion of your dinner purchase will benefit the "To Market, To Market" program, helping neighborhood seniors increase their access to fresh, healthy foods. For four years, Clintonville Farmers' Market has partnered with the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resource Center to support area seniors. Low-income seniors are given coupons that they can use to shop at the market. CRC provides transportation support on a bi-weekly basis.
This popular program, which has grown each year, has become a cornerstone of the market. It serves to get fresh foods into the hands of seniors, combating isolation issues that many face while also benefiting local farmers. CFM and CRC are joining local businesses to bring this program to additional seniors in the community, hoping to serve more than 100 qualified seniors in 2017. There is a wait list. Can you help us?
