City Makes Local Produce Available in Bodegas

The NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets reported a new initiative benefiting both low-income communities and businesses yesterday. The initiative, an extension of the NYC Department of Health's "Move to Fruits and Vegetables" campaign, will place locally grown apples and carrots in neighborhood bodegas (corner stores) to both support local farmers and provide a real choice to neighborhood children and others looking for healthy snacks.
