CLEVELAND CITY COUNCIL - Cleveland and the George Gund Foundation team up to provide greater access to fresh, local foods for residents in need

Residents who rely on the Ohio Direction Card for their monthly grocery needs will soon have new, healthier options for their shopping - local Cleveland farmers’ markets.  The City of Cleveland, in collaboration with the Downtown Cleveland Alliance and area farmers’ markets, and with the support of The George Gund Foundation will launch the Ohio Direction Card EBT incentive pilot program.  The program will allow Ohio Direction Card holders to use their cards at four area farmers’ markets and receive an extra five dollars to spend at the market.
