The Working Group focuses on improving the accessibility and affordability of fresh food for residents of all income levels and supporting small, local farmers through farmers’ markets, CSAs and farm pop-up stands. This year, the group emphasized ways to make farmers markets more accessible to low-income families through CalFresh/EBT acceptance, marketing materials, promotion and technical assistance.
