Lifespan Community Health Institute will provide special nutritional education and cooking demonstrations at Food on the Move. 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.
