Program Description:
Effective collaboration can increase awareness and individual investment in vegetable and fruit consumption in community programs such as Community Gardens, Farm to School Program and Community Supported Agriculture. Food quality is an increasingly important issue in emergency food provisions because these programs have become a mainstay for many low-income families. Low cost, innovative programs and initiatives can be designed to improve the distribution and preparation of fresh vegetables and fruits in the emergency food system.

As a result of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Describe at least one strategy for increasing consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables in low-income communities.
