The Fight for Community Food Access with Nutrition Incentive Programs

Sufficient consumption of nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables is essential to the health of individuals and our community, but the reality is access isn’t available to all citizens equally.  We work in a collaborative network of partners committed to reducing food insecurity barriers through a number of programs providing additional ways for the community to shop fresh food directly from the farmers market. Thanks to the hard work of Pinnacle Prevention and USDA funding the FMNP is available again this season.

The Arizona Farmers Market Nutrition Program provides $30 worth of farmers market coupons to buy Arizona-grown fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Each coupon booklet contains 6 (six) $5 coupons. Eligible customers can pick up their coupons at the Downtown Phoenix Farmers Market information booth.
