In partnership with BMO Harris Bank and Making Kane County Fit for Kids, the Downtown Neighborhood Association invites Downtown Elgin Harvest Market Link/EBT customers to double their shopping pleasure this season with the market’s new Link Double Couponing program.
Beginning June 6, Harvest Market shoppers can swipe their Link/EBT cards at the market’s information booth to be eligible to receive up to an additional $20 in Link tokens to shop with per week, courtesy of a generous financial contribution from BMO Harris Bank.
“The Downtown Elgin Harvest Market helps to fill a critical need in our community,” said BMO Harris Bank Market President Jeff Blanchette. “I am proud that we are able to assist The Downtown Neighborhood Association in their mission to help residents get access to locally grown and sustainably produced food while providing an outlet for educational opportunities on sustainable practices and healthy living.”
The Downtown Elgin Harvest Market’s Link/EBT program, is one of only two such farmer’s market programs in all of Kane County, and is made possible by Making Kane County Fit for Kids thru a grant funded by the Fit For Kids’ Funders Consortium.
“Our Harvest Market has been so blessed to have great partners in the local community, like BMO Harris Bank and the Fit for Kids Funders Consortium, who have made it a priority to help all area residents have access to local foods no matter their economic status,” said Harvest Market Manager Jennifer Benson.
The 14th season of the Downtown Elgin Harvest Market begins Thursday, June 6 with brand new hours from 9am-2pm at 200 N. Grove Avenue across from the Gail Borden Public Library, The Centre of Elgin and The Hemmens. The market runs every Thursday thru October 3.
