The CBL State Savings Bank Foundation granted $1,000 to the Hub City Farmer’s Market.

Hub City Farmer’s Market (HCFM), recently rebranded as Hub City Roots, is a nonprofit organization located in Spartanburg, SC with the mission to strengthen the local food system by providing markets, equitable access, youth education, and development. HCFM doubles the SNAP points for anyone receiving local food assistance and provides fresh, local, and healthy food options. HCFM is also the only market that accepts senior vouchers through SC DSS.

“Simply put, our organization is a food system non-profit focused on food equity and education, and we are so thankful when local businesses, like CBL, give back to help educate on the food supply,” said Dori Burgess, Middle Executive Director for Hub City Farmer’s Market. “Providing healthy food options to the underserved population builds a healthier community.”

Hub City Farmer’s Market has a mission to increase access, diversity, and inclusion at Saturday’s market for the underserved population. The market serves as an incubator to support small business development and removes barriers for small businesses to engage in the Spartanburg community.

“Hub City Farmer’s Market combines access with opportunity in partnering the local farmers and businesses with the diverse population of our community. We believe everyone deserves healthy food options, and we are thrilled to support their effort,” says CBL CEO & President Jennifer T. Jones.
