For more than 20 years, The Food Trust has been working to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food and information to make healthy decisions.
The Food Trust’s comprehensive approach includes improving food environments and teaching nutrition education in schools, working with corner store owners to increase healthy offerings and helping customers make healthier choices, managing farmers’ markets in communities that lack access to affordable produce and encouraging grocery store development in underserved communities.
You may know that The Food Trust, a great nonprofit working in Philly to spread access to affordable and nutritious foods, runs the Frankford Farmers Market.
But did you also know they run the Philly Food Bucks Program, $2 coupons to spend at participating farmers markets for fresh produce? Check out all the details about the program here, and then take advantage of it!
There will be a weekly Farmers Market at the Frankford Transportation Center, Bridge & Pratt streets, at the corner of Frankford & Bustleton. The first market will be Tuesday, July 26th, 2pm-6pm.
There will be “some of the best peaches around” as well as an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables.
