Proposals in the 2020 My LA2050 Grants Challenge will be showcased on Monday, April 13, 2020.
ORGANIZATION: Sustainable Economic Enterprises of Los Angeles (SEE-LA)
TITLE: Market Match Assistant – Benefit & Incentives Program (Atwater Village Farmers’ Market)
REPORTS TO: Senior Manager, Farmers’ Market Programs
SCHEDULE: Sundays, 9:30am-2:00pm
In 2011, SEE-LA implemented an incentive program for low-income shoppers at our markets, called Market Match. The program provides CalFresh/EBT patrons with incentive funds for every dollar they spend at the market using their federal nutrition benefits. Since Market Match funds can only be spent on fresh produce, the program is effective at increasing the purchasing power of low-income residents so they can buy the fresh, local fruits and vegetables they need to stay healthy.
The Market Match Site Assistant works under the direction of the Senior Manager, Farmers’ Market Programs and the Market Manager to provide on-site support for the implementation of the program and its continuing refinement and improvement.
