Connecting Local Farmers with USDA Farmers Market Nutrition Program Participants
Connecting Local Farmers with USDA Farmers Market Nutrition Program Participants is a study designed to determine if transportation is a limiting factor in the redemption of Senior and WIC FMNP (Farmers Market Nutrition Program) participants. It appears the Senior FMNP redemption rate will improve if transportation is provided, but the WIC FMNP redemption rate appears to be limited by factors outside the realm of this study. The overall objective was to study the feasibility of providing transportation services to Senior and WIC participants in FMNP to farmers makets in Southeastern Pennsylvania.The study finds that several other factors other than transportation impact WIC clients’ decisions on whether to visit a farmers market.
