Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley Awards $21,000 Grant to YNDC to Offer Double Up with Unlimited Match


Monday, June 1, 2020

On March 26, 2020, YNDC was awarded a $21,000 grant from Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley to offer unlimited match for the Double Up program. The Double Up program doubles the purchasing power of SNAP customers that buy produce at participating grocery stores. The $10 per day match maximum will be lifted for at least the next six months to support SNAP customers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic decline. The grocery stores currently participating in this program include Cornersburg, South Avenue, and Warren Sparkle Markets; Lincoln Knolls, Gypsy Lane, South Avenue and Warren Save a Lot grocery stores; Struthers IGA; and Cultivate Cafe. Huge thanks to the Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley for the support!
