Fresh Food for Seniors expands into lower Manhattan

Hundreds of seniors across Manhattan have been taking advantage of my Fresh Food for Seniors [1] program. They’re supporting local agriculture and eating healthier by ordering $8 bags of fresh fruit and vegetables (a $15 value). At the start of this season, I announced that we would be expanding into lower Manhattan and I’m pleased to share that deliveries in our new program area have begun at three locations: Southbridge Towers, 200 Rector Place, and St. Margaret’s House.

Sign up and delivery dates vary at each location; check my website [2] for the complete list. Contact Shula Puder Warren at 212-669-2392 or swarren@manhattanbp.nyc.gov [3] for more details.

The program is made possible by partnerships with GrowNYC (the greenmarket people), Council Speaker Corey Johnson, Council Member Helen Rosenthal and neighborhood senior centers. Special thanks to Council Member Margaret Chin for making the lower Manhattan expansion a reality!
