Vol. 11 No. 1 (2021): Food and Community Wellness

Cover of volume 11, issue 1, features the work of the Farmacy Project

The fall 2021 includes papers, columns, book reviews, and more on a wide range of food systems topics, including on food and community wellness. On our cover, Karla Berger (front office assistant at the Brandon Community Health Center in Brandon, Vermont) helps distribute Farmacy Project shares to patients of the clinic. In 2021, the Farmacy Project had 200 members who received 15 weeks of local produce at no cost, grown by farms in the Rutland county area, purchased, bagged by volunteers, and distributed from the Vermont Farmers Food Center, a nonprofit dedicated to strengthening the local food system. The Farmacy Project is an innovative program building relationships between community health and local agriculture, and creating a new preventative healthcare model in the heart of Vermont.
