Illinois LINK Recipients Will Find It Easier To Buy Healthy

On this edition of InFocus, we hear  about a new way to help southern Illinoisans buy locally grown food.

We will hear from Jennifer Paulson, Executive Director of Food Works, Libby Ervin, also with Food works and is the Coordinator of the Southern Illinois Farming Alliance.

We will also hear from a local grower, Michael Hatfield, of Flyway Family Farm in Makanda.

The non-profit Food Works is working to spread awareness of a new initiative to make buying locally grown food more affordable.

The SNAP and Link Match double coupon program enables customers to use their  LINK card to buy food at local farmers markets, and will be provided with matching coupons for fresh vegetables and fruits.
