Noshing for our Neighbors' Nutrition: Help Support the Cheverly Community Market!
May 19, 2017
May 23 - All day long, 20% of your dining, carry out or general store purchase, before taxes, will be donated by Franklin’s. Grab a bite and shop early for Father's Day or graduation at the general store—just provide your receipt and mention the Cheverly Community Market.
There is a reason “Community” is our middle name. We believe a vibrant Market that provides fresh, nutritious food from local farms directly contributes to the health of local citizens and strengthens community.
That's why the Cheverly Community Market was one of the first to participate in the Maryland Market Money dollar-for-dollar matching program. Customers who spend their SNAP, WIC-FVC, or FMNP-Senior/WIC federal nutrition benefits at our Market, receive up to $10 in matching funds to put towards fresh fruits and vegetables. MMM matches up to $5, but thanks to the generosity of our community, we've been able to DOUBLE that benefit to our customers at the Cheverly Community Market.
Last year, this program was made possible through a grant. This year, those funds are not guaranteed. That’s why we’re asking you to join us for our Franklin's FUNdraiserto raise funds so we can continue this matching program and outreach around it.
You can stop by Franklin’s anytime during business hours on May 5 (not just dinner! why not grab some friends for lunch?); the Cheverly Community Market board will be onsite for a “meet and greet” from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
Thank you for your support!
