Description

The Mountain Roots Healthy Futures Program builds community food security by creating synergies among education initiatives, nutrition and food access programs, public health and human services, and agricultural/conservation programs in the central Rocky Mountains and southwestern Colorado. Community-driven initiatives in the Healthy Futures Program include Farm to School, Sustainable Agriculture & Community Gardens, Hunger Solutions (Food Security), and Public Health programs, working together to build and sustain healthy communities, healthy people, and a healthy environment. The Gunnison Farmer’s Market, in partnership with the Gunnison Congregational Church, is interested in addressing the food and nutrition needs of low-income residents and families who are disproportionately affected by health concerns. In particular, increasing the use of SNAP benefits to purchase farm fresh food, and/or alternative distribution models that provide targeted access to fresh, healthy food.
