LAFPC Network 2.18.16 – Farmers Markets for All: Hunger, Health and Universal EBT Access at Farmers Markets

Feb18-Network-Final

If you have questions, please email Camille at cdelavega@goodfoodla.org

Farmers’ markets in LA promote neighborhood connectivity, make our streets vibrant, and connect us to small farmers and organic food grown locally. But not every Angeleno can afford to enjoy the bounty provided by farmers’ markets. In the City of Los Angeles, nearly 60% of farmers’ markets do not accept CalFresh/EBT (formerly known as “food stamps”), despite evidence of the health and economic benefits to EBT recipients and farmers alike.

Join us on February 18th to learn how farmers markets can play an important role in promoting food security and health, especially for low-income Angelenos, while supporting a vibrant regional food economy.
