Market Greens is a program managed locally by Greater Fredericton Social Innovation (GFSI) to promote health and prevent diet-related illnesses, by making fresh fruits and vegetables more accessible and affordable for people living on a low income.
There are two key streams to the program: creation of a non-profit market that provides access to fresh, affordable food once a week, as well as, providing nutritional education; and a Greens Prescription project, offering food coupons to targeted people who are more vulnerable to chronic and diet-related illnesses. The overarching goal of this two-year pilot is to research and test approaches for improving access to fresh foods at the community-level in order to measure and eventually scale-up an investment in subsidized fresh food.
The Produce Manager is responsible for organizing key aspects of the mid-week market, from ordering produce, managing volunteers, coordinating nutritional education, and overseeing the sales process. As well, the Produce Manager will ensure the smooth administration of the Greens Prescription project, ensuring that candidates referred from community partners are enrolled and survey rounds completed.
