As California faces a multi-billion dollar budget shortfall this year, one program facing the chopping block is Market Match, a food stamps partner program that provides extra money to use on produce at farmers markets. Organizers of Market Match in the North State are raising the alarm that losing the program would have massive consequences for communities across the state.
