‘MTSU On the Record’ Gets ‘Fresh’ with Farmers in New Partnership

An effort to get low-income citizens to eat healthier food is the topic on the next “MTSU On the Record” with host Gina Logue at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1, and 8 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).

Dr. Justin Gardner, an assistant professor of agribusiness, will discuss MTSU’s partnership with the Rutherford County Farmers’ Market at the Lane Agri-Park Community Center on John R. Rice Boulevard in Murfreesboro.

The market began accepting Electronic Benefits Transfer cards on May 11. The cards are used to provide Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, formerly known as food stamps.
