WHO DOES WHAT?

Overcoming Obstacles to Food Access in Clinton County:

Experts recommend we eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily to stay healthy and FoodAccessperform our best but most people do not come close.  Access to fresh produce can make it more difficult to meet the recommendations. Access may be limited because prices are too high, produce isn’t available close to home, or families are without transportation to a grocery store where fruits and vegetables are sold.


Grant Overview:

Overcoming Obstacles to Food Access (OOFA) is designed to create more possibilities for consumers to buy and eat local produce by removing common barriers. The program works directly with farmers and markets to provide support and assistance to create successful systems that accept incentive benefits. The program also encourages residents to eat more fruits and vegetables through fun, engaging activities.

Goals:

 By December 2017, OOFA will: 

  • Increase the number of markets that accept benefits like SNAP, WIC, and FMNP
  • Increase the number of purchases at local farmers’ markets and stands
  • Increase the number of locations where fruits and vegetables are sold
