The Maryland Farmers Market Association is excited to attend the Wholesome Wave 2016 Summit, being held in Atlanta GA in the third week of January. The three day conference will be jam-packed with interesting sessions aimed to bring together the community of farmers market organizations involved in incentive programs throughout the country. MDFMA is looking forward to attending and spending time with others in the field – learning and sharing in order to collectively strengthen our work.
MDFMA’s Executive Director Amy Crone will also be on a panel entitled “Organizing for State Nutrition Incentive Policies” on Monday afternoon where she will be discussing the various challenges and means to approach state policies for nutrition incentive programs along with representatives from the Ecology Center in California and Experimental Station in Illinois.
The Transforming Food Access: Accelerating Affordability with Nutrition Incentives Summit will be a great time to collaborate with others and MDFMA is pleased to be a part of this inaugural Summit!
