    SNAP DOUBLE DOLLAR TOKENS PROGRAM ENDS FOR 2014

    The Lynchburg Community Market has exhausted the $5,000 grant from the Virginia Department of Health that offered double-dollar tokens for SNAP beneficiaries from July to October. The overwhelming success of this program shows that the demand for fresh, local, food is growing throughout our community. Thanks to the Virginia Department of Health, SNAP beneficiaries were able to stretch their food dollars here at the Market; our hope is that we will be able to access additional funding in 2015 to continue the program. In the meantime, the Market will continue the token program which allows SNAP beneficiaries the opportunity to shop for their food right here at the Market. The tokens can be spent at the Market Tuesday-Saturday from 7 am - 2 pm. There is no limit to the number of tokens that can be used at the Market.

    The Cheese Shop, Lorraine Bakery, and Grains of Sense Coffee Roastery accept tokens throughout the week for eligible items. There are still many local produce and food vendors accepting SNAP tokens on Wednesdays, with the largest and best variety of SNAP eligible items being sold on Saturdays throughout the year.

    • SNAP tokens can be purchased at the Customer Service Window on both Wednesdays and Saturdays, beginning at 9:00 am on Wednesdays, and 7:00 am on Saturdays.
    • There are many vendors who accept SNAP benefits at the Market. Please look for the SNAP sign at vendor booths, and receive a complete list of vendors at the Customer Service Window.
