The Local Environmental Agriculture Project and Virginia Community Food Connections recently announced the award of a $1.8 million grant to support Virginia Fresh Match.
Virginia Fresh Match doubles the value of SNAP benefits spent at participating farmers
markets. For example, a SNAP shopper uses $20 in SNAP benefits and gets an additional
$20 to spend on fruits and vegetables.
Anyone with SNAP benefits can utilize the program to make their benefits go further. Participating market locations can be found at http://vfm.leapforlocalfood.org/
