#Giving Tuesday – Support MDFMA!

by Amy Crone

After Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday comes Giving Tuesday – a tradition started 4 years ago to encourage people to support causes they care about during the holiday season. This relatively new #GivingTuesday trend has translated into $46 million in donations last year (via NPR)!

On this year’s #GivingTuesday occasion – November 29 –  please consider supporting MDFMA. If you are passionate about food, feeding the hungry, and giving back to farmers markets which help support healthy communities, donate directly or visit our marketplace to see the various ways in which you can join us.

These included: starting a nonprofit (MDFMA), developing a national technology solution to provide farmers market and farmers access to accepting SNAP, building several websites, and becoming a Board member in local organizations. She is happy to be able to follow her passion of improving local food systems and the health of all Marylanders by getting them to buy more fresh local food at Maryland farmers markets. Amy’s other main interests are her husband & 2 children, Crossfitting, and traveling to any location that has interesting and delicious ~preferably local~ food.
