Helping Military Veterans in our Community

 

The Farmers Market launched the Veterans Food Security Program in 2019 in conjunction with North Andover Veterans Services to provide North Andover’s low-income veterans with access to quality products available at our market. Much of the funding for this program comes from the North Andover Merchants Association and local businesses. But you can help too!

How does the program work?

The Veterans Services office distributes vouchers donated by the Farmers Market to eligible veterans. When the veterans come to shop at the Market, they can purchase items from any of our vendors using the vouchers. Vendors collect the vouchers and are reimbursed using funds from the Food Security Program. 

How can you help?

Donations are always needed to keep this program going! Donations can be made on this page or by mailing a check made out to:

 

North Andover Farmers Market

PO Box 552

North Andover, MA 01845

 

Please indicate “Veterans Fund” in the memo line.

Supporting Military Veterans and Local Restaurants with Gift Card Donations

 

In response to the COVID-19 situation in early 2020, the North Andover Farmers Market used funds from our Veterans Food Security Program to purchase and donate $2500 in gift cards from local restaurants to the Veterans Services office who distributed them to North Andover military veterans so they could order delivery or take-out from home.
