Expand healthy food choices in the neighborhood through expanded community gardens, a farmer’s market in Springwood Park, healthy food initiatives at corner stores, and partnerships with local schools.

Bringing more fresh produce to new locations through starting and expanding local initiatives will increase healthy food access throughout the neighborhood and make it easier for residents to make healthy eating choices. There are also opportunities to offer tastings, educate customers about nutrition, hold cooking demonstrations, and more.
