h. Improved accessibility of locally produced food e.g., fruit and vegetables.


Evidence supporting a direct link between purchasing foods from farms and improved diet is currently limited but may increase access to and consumption of locally produced food

Examples of mechanisms to increase purchase of food directly from farms include farmers’ markets, stands, community-supported agriculture, “pick your own,” and farm-to-school initiatives [1]

This is geared towards consumers in local communities
