Fresh foods need to be affordable, too

If The Sun wants to encourage better nutrition ("Maryland's evolving harvest," April 19), I would suggest creating a weekly coupon to help with fresh produce and meats.

The Sun carries many grocery coupons but seldom for fresh produce or meats. I think coupons — perhaps $5-to-$10 off depending on the size of one's purchase — would help encourage families to buy more vegetables and to eat more healthy.

My family spends roughly between $60 and $70 each week on fresh produce. Buying fresh fruit and vegetables is expensive and for some families unaffordable even if they wish to prepare more fresh and healthy meals. I think such coupons would definitely help out.
