Sugar Beet Food Co-op, 812 Madison St., has received a grant allowing the store to participate in Link Up Illinois, a program that gives LINK card shoppers double the buying power when purchasing produce.

"We're very excited to be partnering with Link Up Illinois to bring more value to our LINK customers at the Sugar Beet," said Chris Roland, general manager of the Sugar Beet Food Co-op. "This program will make the co-op even more accessible, while increasing our support to local farmers, and spreading health through organic and sustainable produce."

The match program is in addition to Sugar Beet's Food For All program, which offers participants a 10 percent discount on all purchases

Those participating in the Link Up program can earn up to $25 a day, in a dollar-for-dollar match, when they purchase food at Sugar Beet. More information about Link Up is available at
