Bridging the Gap: with fruit and veg vouchers



The use of vouchers, or conditional cash transfers, has been modelled in the UK through the government food subsidy scheme, Healthy Start (Best Start in Scotland). The Alexandra Rose Charity has further modelled this approach with its Rose Vouchers which can be reclaimed at street markets for purchasing fruit and veg. 

In the USA similar schemes have been running for decades, demonstrating how we can simultaneously build community wealth and community health. In this webinar we will hear from examples of successful conditional cash transfer programmes and pilots in the UK, USA and Belgium. We will look at how these can be applied to enable access to organic fruit and veg for improved health and climate outcomes.
