Access and Affordability Task Team

The NLCFPC Access and Affordability Task Team is focused on increasing access to affordable local fruits and vegetables for all New London County residents. Developing a sustainable food system cannot only rely on wealthy community members to support local farmers, while food insecure individuals and families do not have access to local, healthy fruits and vegetables. In an effort to support such access, the Access and Affordability Task Team is working on the following projects:

  • Double Value Coupon Program - doubling the value of SNAP (food stamp) benefits used at farmers markets
  • Rx for Health - providing coupons to farmers markets for families with children struggling with obesity-related diseases
