There are just two weeks left in our fundraising campaign to ensure that Double Up Food Bucks can continue next year!

We are almost halfway toward our $3,000 goal, but we still need your help. Thank you to all of you who have donated so far!

One in six of your neighbors is facing food insecurity this holiday season. You can put fresh local produce on their dinner table by giving to Double Up Food Bucks at Hollywood Farmers Market
 
For the past ten years Hollywood Farmers Market has distributed over $180,000 to thousands of SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) recipients. This has been made possible by the generosity of many individual donors.
 
We need your help to keep this crucial program going - to  make sure the farmers market remains accessible for everyone.

You can join our effort by giving at our crowdfunding page. If you prefer to make a contribution by cash or check, you can bring it to the farmers market information booth this Saturday, December 21st, and it'll be added to our fundraising total. You can also mail a check to Hollywood Farmers Market, PO Box 13233, Portland, OR 97213. Checks should be made out to Farmers Market Fund, with "Hollywood Farmers Market" in the memo line.
This week, we have a special giveaway which should be exciting for any fan of preserves! Through Sunday December 22nd, anyone who donates $10 or more to our Double Up Food Bucks giving campaign will be entered to win a jar of melon jam from Gales Meadow Farm, a bottle of hot sauce from Naked Acres Farm, and a jar of lacto-fermented leeks from The Fermentista!

Donations to this campaign are tax-deductible, thanks to our fiscal sponsor Farmers Market Fund. Farmers Market Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and contributions are tax deductible to the extent the law allows.
Every $10 you give means one more family can buy fresh, local fruits and vegetables. That means more food in the pantry. That means more sales for our family farmers. And it means a healthier community:

"This program is actually helping my kids grow! They have eaten more fruit this summer than ever before."

"I feel much more connected to the community and to the food I eat when I buy fresh and local from the farmers market. Thank you!"
