City Fresh makes fruits & vegetables convenient

Posted on: June 13, 2018

 Get fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables from City Fresh, a local service that lets you “subscribe” to receive fruits and vegetables every week. Lorain County Public Health and El Centro de Servicios Sociales in Lorain have partnered with City Fresh to make it easier for residents to get fresh fruits and vegetables at an affordable price, and close to home.

“This program aims to make it easier to eat healthy, especially in areas with limited access to grocery stores,” explains David Covell, RS, MPH, health commissioner at Lorain County Public Health. “Eating fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk for developing chronic diseases—like diabetes, heart disease and cancer.”

Here’s how it works -

Local residents place an order for City Fresh fruits and vegetables for the week. Then City Fresh delivers the fruits and vegetables to El Centro, 2800 Pearl Ave., Lorain every Thursday from June through October. Customers can pick up their orders from El Centro between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Customers may order for the whole growing season or one week at a time; no commitment is necessary. Orders start as low as $10 per week, depending on income and family size. SNAP/EBT card, cash, check, and credit card are all accepted. Order at CityFresh.org.
