This year Amy and I signed up for a CSA (it stands for community supported agriculture). It’s essentially a share of a nearby farm’s output for the growing season. That means we get a ton of locally grown fruits and vegetables every week, and it forces us to eat them. I already feel healthier because of it. The only problem is that it’s pretty expensive. We can solve a lot of societal problems “by increasing affordability and access to fresh, locally grown food.” That’s exactly what Wholesome Wave does. They’re a Bridgeport, CT based non-profit with a mission “to empower people in underserved urban and rural communities to make healthier food choices.” Not only can this be good for the environment and public health, but it can also stimulate local economies.
Wholesome Wave does its work in a number of ways. Their programming ranges from a Double Value Coupon Program to a Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Plan (it almost sounds like a much more directed version of a CSA) to Health Food Commerce Investments. Wholesome Wave also works through partnerships and does some policy work. There’s one more program that is part of their mission to “nourish neighborhoods.” It’s their Innovations Lab, and it happens to be where their only current job opening is. Right now they have an Innovations Lab Associate position posted on Idealist. It’s a great opportunity, so check it out.
