Making California’s Farmers Markets Accessible to All 6.8.2018 American Prospect
Elias Funez/The Union via AP A busy farmers market in Nevada City, California Last month, a complex government contracting decision created tumult in the farmers market world by threatening the ability of  nearly 2,000  markets across the country to accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, formerly known as food stamps. However, thanks to a resilient state program, only one of those markets was in California. The U.S. Department of Agriculture runs a program in which private contractors provide software and Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) processing equipment to farmers markets. But as the Prospect  reported  last month, the federal government abruptly changed its contract, forcing one major software company to announce it was going out of business during prime market season. The nonprofit Farmers Market Coalition began to  crowdfund  for markets to buy new equipment, and the National Association of Farmers Market Nutrition Programs and the  state of New Y ork   hashed  out ...

Social enterprise improves food security in Garden Hill First Nation 15.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Marina Puzyreva Food insecurity is a pressing problem for thousands of Indigenous people living in remote reserves in the North of Manitoba. The new CCPA Manitoba report Harnessing the Potential of Social Enterprise in Garden Hill First Nation explores in-depth the themes around food insecurity: people's incomes and spending on food, health issues related to food consumption and traditional food culture. It also suggests ways to increase food accessibility and affordability through local efforts and appropriate public policies. Although the study is community specific, it echoes many problems faced by other northern communities. Garden Hill First Nation (GHFN) is a remote community located 610 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
