WEST ASHEVILLE TAILGATE MARKET asked us to get the word out that they offer DOUBLE (2x) your $$$ dollars with EBT food assistance !!!
with the help of our friends at ASAP and LIGHTNING BOLT INK, we printed these totes and compiled some info about how to get EBT / food stamps / food assistance in NC.
our intention with this collab is to BREAK DOWN THE STIGMA around food stamps and help people figure out how to apply. you may qualify depending on how much money your household makes. a lot more people qualify than you would think !! for example, in 2021, a household of 2 may be eligible if they make a maximum of $1,868, or in some cases up to $2,874 monthly (when you submit your application, a case worker will determine your eligibility status).
this is beginning of many conversations so please pull up a seat at the table & let’s talk !
we know the sensitivity & feeling shame around asking for help only bc we have experienced it ourselves but fuck that, everybody’s gotta eat 🖤
