Cornersburg Sparkle Launches Produce Perks SNAP Double-Up Program


Tuesday, January 16, 2018

On January 16, YNDC and Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley were joined by Mayor Jamael Tito Brown, 5th Ward Councilwoman Lauren McNally, and Yvonne Smith of Pathways HUB to launch the Produce Perks SNAP Double-Up program at the Cornersburg Sparkle Market.

The Produce Perks SNAP Double-Up program allows SNAP/EBT recipients to receive up to $10 in matching funds each day to be spent on fresh fruits and vegetables. The program is part of the Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive grant awarded by the USDA to YNDC and Mercy Health in order to increase the health of residents in Mahoning and Trumbull counties. The Double-Up program is currently available at Sparkle Market in Cornersburg and at Cultivate: A Co-Op Café on the North Side.
