About Our Team

This website is a project of the Nutrition Incentive Hub‘s Farm Direct Team. The Nutrition Incentive Hub is a coalition of partners, created by the Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program Training, Technical Assistance, Evaluation, and Information Center (GusNIP NTAE Center), that supports nutrition incentive and produce prescription projects. The GusNIP NTAE Center is led by the Gretchen Swanson Center for Nutrition. In partnership with Fair Food Network, they assembled the Nutrition Incentive Hub, a coalition of practitioners, grocery and farm direct specialists, researchers, and evaluators from across the country.

Together, we are dedicated to supporting program applicants and grantees and strengthening and uniting the best thinking in the field to increase access to and affordability of fruits and vegetables and improve health outcomes of participating households.
