Addressing Food Security in Madison County with Beacon of Hope

Mars Hill Farmers and Artisans Market has partnered with Beacon of Hope’s food pantry in Marshall to help address issues of food insecurity in Madison County. MHFAM will offer a donation station at the management tent where shoppers can leave donations to be picked up by Beacon of Hope at the end of each market day for distribution through their food pantry the following week. Monetary donations made at our market management tent or here on the website will be used to purchase products from our vendors to then be donated to Beacon of Hope. Our vendors may also choose to donate excess products to the donation efforts as well.

Introducing the Farm Fresh Prescription! 

As part of Farm Fresh for Health, ASAP is introducing the Farm Fresh Produce Prescription. Participating healthcare providers can prescribe patients more fresh fruits and vegetables to help treat or prevent diet-related illness. Patients redeem their prescription at a local farmers market or through a local produce delivery service or a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box.

The prescription incentive provides healthcare providers with action steps that fit within the healthcare process. Social environments significantly impact food choices and are a crucial intervention point to increase healthy eating. Farmers markets naturally offer environments that encourage eating fresh and seasonal fruit and vegetables, cooking at home, and eating together with friends and family.
