The Food Trust is a nonprofit organization that helps make healthy food accessible to the underprivileged. It was founded in 1992 by Duane Perry in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The goal of the organization is to improve the health of children and adults by providing better nutrition. The Food Trust supports local farms and advocates healthy food access for everyone. It is currently operating 25 farmer's markets in the Philadelphia region. The markets accept SNAP/food stamps (EBT/Access cards), Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program vouchers and Philly Food Bucks. The Food Trust is funded by private foundations, government grants, and individual donors. - Source: Wikipedia
