The Hungry Harvest SNAP Market was a HUGE success. The SNAP Market was held on Wednesday, April 25th from 1:00pm-3:30pm in the food pantry at The Children’s Guild’s Monarch Academy Baltimore Public Charter School.
The Hungry Harvest SNAP Market program rescues produce that stores are unable to sell and they sell the produce to communities at a discounted price.
There was a big turnout for the SNAP Market program in the Baltimore community. Many of the attendees carted away several bags of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables for their families at a reduced price of $7.00 per bag. Many of the sale items included nectarines, pink lady apples, broccoli crowns, zucchini, carrots, cubanelle peppers, watermelon, butternut squash, asparagus, spinach, beefsteak tomatoes, red onions, and black plums.
The SNAP Market was open to all of the surrounding Baltimore community and all of the Monarch Academy Baltimore staff and their families.
We look forward to hosting another great Hungry Harvest SNAP Market at Monarch Academy Baltimore on May 23rd.
