This summer, more seniors are able to get their daily five, thanks to a coordinated effort to increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables for those on a limited income.
Since 2009, Wholesome Wave has matched produce purchases, dollar for dollar, for those using SNAP benefits at participating community markets.
In 2016, more than $440,000 was spent at markets through this program, said Caitlin Still, development and communications coordinator for Wholesome Wave Georgia.
