Gleaner's Market Friday August 28, 2015

Announcing our first Gleaner's Market this Friday August 28 from 10:30 am - 12 noon.  This outdoor "market" is an experiment for Common Heart. At least four times a year we have an abundance of food that we need to give out and we can not do it through out normal channels.  So, we decided to try our own version of a farmer's market.

We will have fresh vegetables, fruit, and baked goods such as bread, cakes and cookies. During this one we will also have a some frozen meat that we will be able to give out as well.  There is no cost.  All participants will need to fill out an application and will need to either receive food stamps (SNAP) or make less than 200% of the federal poverty level.  Here is a link to the 200% FPL standard. We also ask that your family currently have a need for groceries so that everyone who has a need can get what they need.

All households wishing to participate should begin arriving at 10 am (please, no earlier). The location is our community resource center, The Commonplace. 116 Business Park Dr, Suite A, Indian Trail, NC 28079.   If you have questions or would like more information you can contact us at CommonHeart@TheCommonplace.org or 704-218-9060.

If you would like to attend, you can pre-register here.
