Fruit & veg voucher scheme to launch

Written by on September 6, 2015 in Uncategorized - 1 Comment

FullSizeRenderBrixton Market Traders Federation has joined forces with the Alexander Rose Charities in a fruit and veg vouchers scheme that supports families on low incomes.

The scheme officially launches later this month.

The scheme is designed to enable families to buy a larger quantity of healthy food from somewhere they can easily get to and that has more choice.

Stuart Horwood, CEO of Brixton Market Traders Federation says five fruit and veg stalls have already joined the scheme.

People on lower incomes are one and a half times more likely to get diabetes than those on higher incomes and to have a lower life expectancy.
