An effort to get low-income citizens to eat healthier food was the topic of a recent “MTSU On the Record” radio program with host Gina Logue.
Dr. Justin Gardner, an assistant professor of agribusiness, discussed MTSU’s partnership with the Rutherford County Farmers’ Market at the Lane Agri-Park Community Center on John R. Rice Boulevard in Murfreesboro. You can listen to their conversation here.
The market began accepting Electronic Benefits Transfer cards on May 11. The cards are used to provide Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, formerly known as food stamps.
