About

Help increase food access in your community by joining the Farmers’ Market Brigade!

Farmers’ Market Brigade volunteers help distribute Produce Plus checks at DC farmers’ markets. Through the Produce Plus program, DC residents who receive SNAP, WIC, Medicaid, TANF, Grocery Plus, or SSI can receive $10 per household/market/week to spend on fresh fruits and vegetables! Volunteers are a vital part of the program and are needed to distribute the checks at neighborhood farmers’ markets during the 2016 season. Sign up and become a Farmers’ Market Brigade volunteer today at http://dcgreens.org/brigade/! Volunteers are required to attend a 1-hour training with DC Greens. Please contact Brittany at brittany@dcgreens.org with questions.
