At Wholesome Wave Georgia (WWG), we believe all Georgians should have access to good, wholesome and locally-grown food. Founded in 2009, WWG’s mission is to strengthen local food communities by empowering networks of farmers to facilitate access to and awareness of healthy food choices. In 2009, WWG launched as a state-wide chapter of Wholesome Wave National’s Double Value Coupon Program to double Federal Nutrition Assistance (FNA; i.e., SNAP, WIC) benefits at Georgia farmers markets. Through our Georgia Fresh for Less (GF4L) program, WWG has grown from three partner farmers markets in 2009 to a network of over 60 markets and direct-marketing farms today. WWG launched the Southeast’s first Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program in 2015, connecting low income families with chronic illness to health care providers and nutrition and culinary education. Since 2009, WWG has provided over $2 million in healthy food to Georgia’s FNA recipients and in revenue to local farmers through these two programs. For more information, please visit
