December 15, 2107- The Greensboro Farmers Market, Inc. (GFM) announces the completion of funding for the 2017 Orange Card Token Program. This fresh food access token program was the result of a partnership with the Guilford Community Care Network (GGCN) Orange Card Program. In 2017 it was funded through generous donations from the Cone Health Foundation, the Cone Health Fund
and an anonymous donation through the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro, Inc. This funding provided for GCCN participants to purchase fresh foods at the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market.
The Orange Card Token Program is subject to available funding. Please refer to the website for any updates to the Orange Card Program.
