The United States Census indicates that Worcester has high levels of food insecurity. The Worcester Advisory Food Policy Council states that many residents are not aware of the potential benefits of farmersÂ’ markets. We aimed to improve how farmersÂ’ markets within Worcester could address food security and raise awareness. Through surveys and interviews, we gathered an understanding of the situation and recommended organizing Worcester markets in a common direction by implementing socially effective, entrepreneurial methods and obtaining additional third-party funds.
