In an innovative partnership that brings together researchers and nutrition incentive practitioners, Wholesome Wave and Case Western Reserve will use technology, data, research, and education as tools to:
- Build capacity among nutrition incentive program practitioners to increase affordable access to healthy foods;
- Develop industry standards for uniform nutrition incentive data collection;
- Build an evidence base to advocate for incentive policy.
Through this partnership, they will launch FM Tracks, an IOS-based app and website for gathering and organizing farmers market sales and incentive usage while evaluating trends and impact.
