An $8,000 grant has been awarded to the Danbury Farmer's Market Community Collaborative. The money from Connecticut-based non-profit Wholesome Wave will help partially defray the cost of operating nutrition incentive programs. It will also double the value of government nutrition benefits such as SNAP, formerly known as food stamps. The Danbury Farmer's Market is held every Friday at Kennedy Park through the end of October. Wholesome Wave partners with farmers markets and others to implement programs that benefit consumers in under-served communities.
