CSX and the Conservation Fund Team Up with West Virginia Families and Farms to Facilitate Healthy Eating


CSX and The Conservation Fund have teamed up for a second year with the West Virginia's Department of Agriculture and local organizations to promote healthy eating habits and increased access to local produce for hundreds of children and families in McDowell, Roane and Mingo counties.

The program is providing coupons to help make locally-grown fresh foods more convenient for purchase, financial assistance for mobile and school-based farmers markets, and nutrition and healthy eating classes. New this year, classes will also be held on vendor recruitment, customer service and basic accounting to assist with the long-term viability of the farmers markets.

Throughout the summer and fall, children and their parents in McDowell and Roane County can shop for local produce using "Kids Koupons" and participate in food tastings and nutritional demonstrations at farmers market events at their local schools. Families with children who use Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) dollars will receive double the amount of healthy food vouchers for every dollar spent at the markets on healthy food. Around 250 children from each county will receive the vouchers.

This program is part of a broader effort between CSX and The Conservation Fund to improve Americans' access to fresh, healthy food. The partnership also created The Grant Program for Transporting Healthy Food, which aims to help improve delivery capabilities of fresh produce and perishable food to farmers markets and communities in need. Charitable entities in 22 states can apply for a grant through September 18. More information is available at http://www.conservationfund.org/partner-with-us/business/csx.
