Farmers’ market voucher programs are popping up across North America as a means to connect low-income people with nutritious, local food, while at the same time supporting small-scale producers. While market voucher programs have commendable goals, there are still many questions that need to be addressed regarding the opportunities, barriers and viability of these programs in Ontario.
Sustain Ontario, in collaboration with the Greenbelt Farmers’ Market Network, hosted this webinar on Monday, November 19, 2012 at 3:00pm EST to look at these important questions. The panel featured panelists involved in market voucher programs in BC and Ontario, as well as a US participant involved with a Double Value Coupon Program.
