Show Notes

Every day, there are millions of children and adults who do not get the meals they need to thrive. According to Feeding America, Florida is 3rd in the nation with the highest number of people living in food-insecure households—over 2,500,000 people.  

In this episode, Katie Delaney, Fresh Access Bucks (FAB) Co-Manager, and Andi Emrich, Florida Farmers Market Association Coordinator (FFMA), join us to discuss how the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Fresh Access Bucks Programs (FAB) are being used to respond to these needs. 

In this episode, learn about: 

- The history of the SNAP and FAB programs 

- Benefits these programs provide to the food system as a whole 

- Where these programs operate 

- Resources to learn more and get involved
