Veterans, Children, & Farmers
Every week, veterans can pick up $5 worth of vouchers to spend however they’d like at the Bedford Farmers' Market. Starting June 7th, families can bring children to get vouchers, too. Farmers' Market Manager Gwen Querry started the program last year with a few hundred dollars, funded by a handful of local businesses and the VFW. This year, she’s been able to expand the program through a $1,000 grant through the Community Foundation, supplemented by the Hyndman Health Center and an anonymous donor, for a total of $850 available to children and $650 for veterans.
