Food Access at Glenwood Sunday Market
The Rogers Park community is an economically diverse one in which more than 20% of our residents are considered to be food insecure, meaning they don't know when they will have their next meal or if that meal with be nutritionally sound. It is a core value of Glenwood Sunday Market to make locally grown and produced food accessible to our whole community and has proudly accepted SNAP benefits since opening in 2010.
Double Dollar Matching Grants
Thanks to our generous donors and grantors, Glenwood Sunday Market strives to provide Dollar for Dollar marching grants of up to $25 per Link Shopper per market per shopper while funds last, twice!
We are approved by the USDA to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits and have been since the market opened in June, 2010.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants can use their SNAP/Link/EBT card to purchase vegetables, fruit, meat, cheese, tofu, baked goods, vinegar, honey and more.
Thanks to LINK Up Illinois and many friends and supporters of Glenwood Sunday Market, we gave away $20,000 in micro-grants and produce-purchasing vouchers helping hundreds of people afford fresh food at the market in 2018.
