Saint Agnes Health Institute Improves Access to Fresh Produce

8/17/2018, 6 a.m.
The weekly community produce market aims is to serve as community health resource.

Every Thursday, starting on August 16, 2018, the new Saint Agnes Health Institute is partnering with Hungry Harvest’s “Produce in a SNAP,” a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program that pairs access to healthy foods with patient education.

The offering aims to address community health needs by increasing access to fresh fruit and vegetables to improve the overall wellbeing of the Baltimore community.

Members of the community are invited to purchase a bag of fresh fruits and veggies valued at $15 for just $7. The markets also accept SNAP benefits.

The market will be held every Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the sidewalk of Saint Agnes Hospital between parking lots B and F, adjacent to the Hackerman-Patz House.

In case of rain, the market will be held in the Wilkens Avenue Parking Garage at 900 Caton Avenue on the first floor.
