Current Market Programs that are in need of funding:
- EBT Food Stamps: the wireless machine, tokens and costs related to the financial account are approx. $120.00 per month during the season.
- Kids Activities: the costs associated with the educational arts & crafts activities that are provided free to all children vary from week to week, average is approx. $40.00 per week.
- Senior Outreach: this is a new program being developed this year, partnering with Klamath County Public Health, the Senior Center and various senior care homes to provide transportation to market. The market is one of the few local farm stands seniors can use FDNP vouchers they recieve from Oregon State to buy vegetable and fruit.
- Entertainmant & Music: every week the market pays local musicians and performers to entertain and add that special atmosphere we all so enjoy. Better funding of this program will allow for longer performances and ability to pay our local performing artists fairly.
You can specify any of these programs, or contact us for more options or if there is a specific aspect of the market you'd like to aim your donation towards. Other funding needs are the porta-potty's, Market Info/Education Wagon and eventually, we'd like to be able to have a paid Market Manager position.
