One easy way to gain more community and financial support for the Double Up Food Bucks program at your Farmers Market is by cultivating relationships with your state and local elected leaders. Now is the perfect time to begin to develop these relationships: help them understand the impact Double Up Food Bucks has on your community (especially in light of COVID-19), ask for their support of future DUFB funding, and show off all of your great work at the market!
During this webinar, we will be discussing the ins and outs of building these types of relationships. We will hear from FMF's lobbying partner, Christina Bodamer from the American Heart Association, and Oregon Farmers Market Managers will share their own experiences. There will be plenty of time for Q & A. Elected leaders make the best policy decisions when they hear from you—the experts!
