New This Year: A Turkey Raffle for Double Dollars Customers!
The Howe Farm of Downingtown, Pa, is donating 10 naturally raised, hormone- and antibiotic-free turkeys to be raffled off to Double Dollars participants for Thanksgiving. Fair Food has been selling turkeys from Howe Farm, a small-scale second generation farm, since 2013, and this is the first year that Howe has donated turkeys to benefit Double Dollars participants. Double Dollars participants who shop at the Fair Food Farmstand through November 16 will have the chance to enter their name in the raffle for each $5 Double Dollar Coupon they are issued and/or they redeem. Ten winners will be drawn on November 17th and will be notified by email or phone.
Double Dollars is Fair Food’s a cash-match program at the Fair Food Farmstand in Reading Terminal Market that increases access to healthy foods for all SNAP beneficiaries. For every $5 you spend at the Farmstand with your EBT card, Fair Food will give you an additional $5 to spend on MORE fresh food – up to $10 in coupons per week.
The Fair Food Farmstand sells fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, cheeses, eggs, meats and value-added foods from local farms. All Farmstand products qualify for Double Dollars coupons.
