Sustaining Double SNAP

Big wins in our Double SNAP Campaigns!

CAN worked hard to educate our municipal leaders about the benefits of Double SNAP, resulting in strong support from the Town of Mills River and City of Hendersonville for Double SNAP Programs. Send your thanks to council members for their support for SNAP participants, farmers, small businesses, and our markets today!
