September 19, 2017- The Greensboro Farmers Market, Inc. (GFM) announces the continuation of its partnership with the Guilford Community Care Network (GGCN) Orange Card Program. This partnership will provide funding for GCCN participants to purchase fresh foods at the Market on Wednesday or Saturday. GCCN is a non-profit program of community supporters that coordinates health care services for low-income or uninsured individuals in Guilford County.
Orange Card beneficiaries will receive $10 in tokens weekly to shop the Market for fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, eggs, meat (lamb, beef, pork, poultry, seafood) and honey. Token distribution is only on Wednesdays (8 am – 1 pm) although tokens may be used during both Wednesday and Saturday Markets.
The Orange Card Token Program is subject to available funding. Please refer to the website for any updates to the Orange Card Program.
How It Works
Orange Card holders present their GCCN Orange Card and ID at the manager’s station during Wednesday Market hours, 8 am – 1 pm. Each token is valued at one dollar and may be used in combination with cash or change as vendors may not give change back. Orange Card Market Tokens may be used at participating vendors displaying Orange Card token signs and tokens maybe used at both Wednesday and Saturday Markets.
The Greensboro Farmers Curb Market accepts EBT/SNAP & offers DOUBLE SNAP (up to $15) during Wednesday Markets (8am- 1pm). For more information on EBT/SNAP please contact the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
