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.
Free Farm Stands at senior centers will run from June to October 2023. To download a PDF of the schedule, click here: 2023 Senior Market Schedule.
