Got Green Helps Save Farmers Market Bucks

Good News!

The Farmer’s Market Nutrition Programs (FMNP) did not get cut and are included in our Washington State Senate and House Budgets!

Over the last 4 months Got Green worked to save the FMNP.

With your help we…….

*Collected over 250 petitions
*Organized two grassroots advocacy and lobby trips to Olympia
*Made calls to our legislators
*Sent letters to the editor

 As a Got Green supporter we want to thank you too!

 Please call our Southeast Seattle Legislators and Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown to thank them for their work to save this valuable program for our community! The two budget proposals now go through reconciliation but it is highly unlikely that FMNP would be cut at this point!

 THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! IT MADE A DIFFERENCE!
