The foundation works to improve health outcomes for vulnerable populations by increasing access to fresh, locally grown food and bolstering revenues for family farmers on a national level. Through this grant, Wholesome Wave is partnering with the Fair Food Network to ensure the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program incentive program included in the 2014 farm bill is implemented, and to pilot and evaluate a model of an optimal nutrition incentive program in two communities that is designed to improve access to affordable healthy food for low-income Americans and stimulate local economic growth.
