About FreshLink

Improving Nutritious Food Access in Low-Income, Low-Access Neighborhoods

FreshLink was a five-year research project that worked with community partners to increase access to healthy food in Cleveland and East Cleveland, Ohio, by evaluating and improving how people receiving SNAP benefits (food stamps) use farmers’ markets and the Produce Perks program. The project was based on peer-to-peer outreach to promote awareness of and social connectedness to markets. By bridging residents to resources, the FreshLink Ambassador model helps to foster healthy communities. Click here to learn more about each of FreshLink's study phases.
 The Mary Ann Swetland Center for Environmental Health at Case Western Reserve University is continuing to develop the FreshLink Ambassador Approach.
