The number of older adults facing food insecurity is on the rise. As an attempt to reduce food insecurity at a policy level, nutrition incentive programs such as Market Match have been available within the community at participating Farmers Markets. An ecological framework was used in this study to assess the impact of Market Match on intrapersonal, interpersonal, community and policy factors that contribute to food insecurity for older adults. The aim of this study was to evaluate the overall impact of Market Match among older adults by measuring participants’ Market Match satisfaction through feasibility and accessibility. Findings from this study suggests programs such as Market Match may be beneficial in reducing food insecurity among older adults.
