Lifespan Community Health Institute will provide a special nutritional education and cooking demonstration at Food on the Move on Thursday, August 17 at the North Road Terrace in Coventry. The program, hosted by the Rhode Island Public Health Institute, is a mobile market that brings fresh fruits and vegetables directly into neighborhoods, at a discount, year round.
Free healthy samples, recipe cards, and nutritional information will be supplied.
Food on the Move will double the value of SNAP benefits at the mobile market. For every $1 spent on fruits and vegetables, another $1 gift card will be given to to customers to buy more. Cash, credit/debit, and SNAP/EBT will be accepted.
