by Bonnie DeVinney, Vice President and Chief Program Ocer, Greater RochesterHealth FoundaonJune is a me when most Americans can look forward to nding plenful produce?fresh, in-season and less expensive. But families who live in cies can have amuch harder me nding fresh fruits and vegetables close to home.Organizaons throughout the city are helping bring fruits and veggies to familiesthroughout Rochester. For instance, Foodlink is bringing its Curbside Market, atruck full of fresh fruits and veggies, to 26 dierent locaons throughout thecity each week, and is also encouraging city corner stores to sell fresh produce.North East Area Development ?through its Freedom Market on Webster Avenue? is also making important strides to oer healthier foods, including fresh fruitsand veggies, to the neighborhood.As always, the Rochester Public Market is a great place for families to buyfresh produce, and groups like ABC Headstart are holding events and toursto encourage more families to shop there. It’s so important that groups likeCommunity Place of Greater Rochester and Foodlink are hosng farm standsright in our neighborhoods.Whether it’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month or any other month of the year,the Health Foundaon believes that eang ve servings of fruits and vegetableseach day is vital to a healthy lifestyle. We are thrilled that our community hasfound even more ways to make fresh produce available to everyone throughoutthe summer, and we hope all families in the city of Rochester get out to one of the many stores, stands or trucks now oered in your neighborhood.Find a list of great places to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at www.BeAHealthyHero.org
