SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Two Santa Fe-based organizations are getting federal grants to support programs that help people receiving nutritional assistance to increase their purchases of fruits and vegetables.

The Department of Agriculture on Wednesday announced $31.5 million of funding nationwide, including awards of $99,000 to the New Mexico Farmers Marketing Association and $100,000 to the Santa Fe Community Foundation.

Both grants are for pilot projects up to a year in duration.

According to the USDA, the grants are being funded through a program authorized and funded by 2014 farm legislation.
