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.
