Meals Plus Program--An Innovative Approach for Providing Local Produce to Meals on Wheels Clients
Wagner, Katie
Journal of Extension, v54 n1 Article 1IAW3 Feb 2016
Extension programming often strives to achieve maximum impact on a minimum budget, but when it comes to sourcing local produce, asking farmers to donate sellable commodity can result in a dip into their profits. By connecting community partners, Extension can facilitate collaborations that work in the favor of all participating parties and ultimately provide a valuable service. This model was implemented in the development of the Meals Plus program, an add-on service to Salt Lake County Meals on Wheels (MOW). The Meals Plus program delivered 130-160 shares of local produce weekly to MOW clients during Salt Lake County's 5-month farmers' market season.
