A holistic approach to health includes better nutrition. Field & Fork Network’s Double Up Food Bucks program, a dollar-for-dollar match on fresh fruits and vegetables for those on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), helps low-income households bring home more fruits and vegetables — which in turn promotes better nutrition.
“Families are eating more healthy food as a result of the program,” said Lisa Tucker French, cofounder and executive director. “Ultimately, we’re making fresh, local food more accessible and more affordable.”
