Stephanie and Kim are both Registered Dietitians, and have a combined 16 years working in food access in a number of settings. Most recently, through Mass in Motion New Bedford, Stephanie and Kim played key roles in assuming management of the New Bedford Farmers Market, making it SNAP-accessible, increasing the number and diversity of vendors, and re-branding the market to ultimately double sales within the first year. They have continued to increase food access within New Bedford by creating the Subsidized Farm Share Program and setting up the city’s first pop-up farm stand. Kim has also been a board member for SEMAP since 2014, and Stephanie has been Coordinator of the Southeastern Mass Food Security Network since 2014.
