Purdue Extension FoodLink
FoodLink℠ is the resource for anyone who has ever stood in front of produce and wondered, “What is that?” or “What do I do with that?” Scan the FoodLink℠ QR codes on fresh fruits and vegetables to learn more about them, including how to select, prepare, and care for them.

You don’t have to be a seasonal produce expert, but now you can get information fast from the experts at Purdue Extension.

Market Basket 360
The Market Basket 360 initiative has assembled comprehensive resources for farmers markets in Indiana, including technical assistance for market managers, education for market vendors, and interactive learning events for market attendees. This initiative addresses three Extension strategic initiatives: Expanding agriculture-related opportunities; strengthening workforce, business, and economic development; and promoting healthy living. Contact the educator in your county to learn more about upcoming opportunities and events in your area.

MarketLink
MarketLink is a program of the National Association of Farmers Market Nutrition Programs (NAFMNP) that assists farmers and markets with accepting the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly Food Stamps) and electronic payments. Founded in 2013 in partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture, MarketLink has helped more than 3,000 farmers and markets accept electronic payments – including more than $20m in SNAP sales.

Wholesome Wave
We are a national non-profit addressing complex problems with simple, innovative, effective solutions. Founded by James Beard Award-winning Chef Michel Nischan, Wholesome Wave makes healthy produce affordable for the people who need it most. We played a key role in triggering the first national, federally funded nutrition incentive program in history (FINI), resulting in $100 Million in the 2014 Farm Bill for nutrition incentives nationally. We work in 49 states and counting, and our programs touch over 500,000 people annually.
