Farm Alliance of Baltimore, Inc.

The Farm Alliance is a network of 16 urban farms working collectively to improve the viability of urban farming, repurpose vacant land into productive use, and increase food access to all residents through a cooperative farmers market stand, collective branding and marketing, shared tools, and training. Food is a determinant of health and recent studies indicate a strong correlation between healthy food access, life expectancy and premature death due to cardiovascular disease. This grant enables SNAP (food stamp) recipients to match fruit and vegetable purchases from the farms through the Double Dollars program, and pays for cooking demonstrations and nutrition education by a wellness business owned by women of color.
