When compared to other age demographics, seniors experience food insecurity at a disproportionate level. Check out our blog post for more information.
The Green Urban Lunch Box partners with Salt Lake County’s Aging and Adult Services, Utah State University Extension’s Master Gardeners Program, and Salt Lake County Jail’s Horticulture Program to host Free Farm Stands for seniors at local senior centers. We work together to address food insecurity and create access to healthy fresh food for senior citizens in our community by growing and distributing food to them through these markets.
Updates for Free Farm Stands at senior centers next season will be provided as they become available.
The 2022 Market Schedule for Free Farm Stands will be added once it becomes available.
