Building an Appetite for Health: An Academic Medical Center's Campus Farmers' Market and Outreach Initiatives

Over the past five years, the Farmers’ Market in Hershey has expanded to provide healthy food choices and education to not only our campus but also to our underserved local community. This initiative supports the goal of Healthy People 2020 to “promote health and reduce chronic disease risk through the consumption of healthful diets and achievement and maintenance of healthy body weights.” Academic farmers’ markets need to distinguish themselves by providing innovative programs to all age groups and expanding through community partnerships, student projects and grant funding to reach high risk individuals. Best practices and unique strategies are identified that could be easily replicated by other health-promoting hospitals.
