While new retail initiatives and food-assistance policies have yet to be implemented in Delaware, this section highlights programs that have been implemented elsewhere. The following links provide more information on how programs at the federal, state, and local levels may serve as models of programs to improve affordability of nutritious, fresh, and locally grown food in Delaware.
