Permalink Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive Grants to Encourage Healthy Food Purchases

USDA logoUSDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture has announced the award of $16.8 million in grants through the Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) program. The grants are designed to help Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants increase their purchases of fruits and vegetables. The awards under FINI represent a variety of projects, including projects under $100,000, multi-year community-based projects, and larger-scale multi-year projects. One of the large grants, for $3.9 million, goes to the California Department of Food and Agriculture to offer nutrition incentives to encourage CalFresh shoppers to purchase healthy food and empower them to increase their consumption of fruits and vegetables.
