This annual event aims to raise funds for Wholesome Wave Georgia and community awareness in support of the 1.6 million Georgians who are food-insecure and receive Federal Nutrition Assistance (FNA) benefits. Wholesome Wave Georgia aims to provide low-income and food-insecure families with access to fresh, wholesome and locally-grown food by matching their FNA benefits (i.e. SNAP/EBT or WIC) dollar-for-dollar at local farmers markets. Our mission puts more fresh food on the table for these families in need and provides more revenue for small business Georgia farmers.
