摘要: 
Food banks have made efforts to distribute more fresh produce as part of their goal to bring healthier food to lower-income consumers. The Kentucky Association of Food Banks investigated the impact of their "Farms to Food Banks" fresh produce nutrition and recipe education program and sourcing project. An evaluation of this program shows evidence of expanded fresh produce utilization among recipients. Cost associated with fresh produce is by far the largest barrier to consumption. The Extension implications of this study focus on educating food bank patrons about various subsidy programs, like SNAP, as well as the healthiness associated with fresh produce.
