Through your purchase, you will donate one 5-pound bag of red delicious apples* to a free “Farmers’ Market” hosted for the homeless by Love The Hopeful, a Baltimore-based non-profit charitable organization. The fresh produce you donate will be delivered by 818 Market to the next Hopeful Market (see schedule below).
100% of your donation will go to purchasing food that will be donated to homeless people who lack food security. Your donation is tax-deductible. A receipt will be sent to you by Love The Hopeful within 2 weeks of the market’s date. For any questions on The Hopeful Market, please see https://lovethehopeful.org/hopeful-market.
*818 Market and Love The Hopeful reserve the right to change the exact food item, based on needs and availability. In all cases, 100% of your donation will be used to purchase fresh fruit and produce that will be distributed at the next free Farmers’ Market. Please note that apples in particular have proven to be a popular donation item, but are difficult for our clients for whom biting and chewing are hard. Snap peas, green beans, and other suitable substitutes will be used when the volume of apple donations gets high.
