August 2017 Edition

2017 FINI Awards Announced. 

Earlier this month the USDA announced the much anticipated 2017 FINI (Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive) Program grant awards, providing $16.8M to 32 projects supporting SNAP recipients in increasing F&V purchases at farmers markets, CSAs, mobile markets, and retail. 


2018 FINI RFA, Coming Soon

Heading into this fall, we await the 4th round of Request for Applications (RFAs) for FINI grant funding, and want to make sure the network is ready when it drops. Intested in bringing us on to help your planning process? Contact Leah Hancock at leah@wholesomewave.org

The year-long DSMEP group education sessions occur once per month, covering topics such as healthy cooking on a budget, physical activity, goal setting, and problem solving. For every session attended, patients receive $40 in prescription vouchers redeemable at a local supermarket for fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables.
