Topic/Speaker: The Farm Fresh Foods for Healthy Kids Study by Marilyn Sitaker, MPH - Marilyn will review this five-year community-based, randomized intervention trial conducted in New York, North Carolina, Vermont, and Washington. The intervention consisted of subsidized, or “cost-offset,” community supported agriculture (CSA) shares.  Payments could be made on a weekly basis, with the option of using SNAP/EBT benefits.  Nine skill-based and seasonally-tailored healthy eating classes were offered, along with basic kitchen tools. This talk presents the main nutrition findings, comparing changes in fruit and vegetable intake for caregivers and children in the intervention group to those in the control group.
