We're dedicated to expanding access to nutritious, local, sustainably-produced food — that's why we welcome and triple match Link (also known as SNAP or EBT) up to $25. When shoppers with Link spend $25 of benefits at Green City Market, they receive $75 in Link vouchers or tokens to spend at the market like cash. Of this $75, $50 will be given in GCM For All vouchers or tokens that may be used on any SNAP eligible item. The remaining $25 will be given in LinkUp Illinois vouchers that are restricted to fruits and vegetables only.
Additionally, after the initial $25 triple match, GCM will continue to double match, dollar-for-dollar, with no limit. This means that for every dollar spent beyond the initial $25, you will receive $1 in GCM For All vouchers or tokens and $1 in Link Up Illinois vouchers.
