3rd Annual Fresh Food for Seniors Program

Brought to you by Council Member Erik Bottcher and Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine


This program gives local residents (of all ages) access to fresh fruits and vegetables from farms near New York City, for just $10 a bag. Last year, 1,309 bags of fresh produce were distributed as part of this program.

Every two weeks at participating senior centers, participants can order and pick-up their pre-packed food bag filled with fresh produce from regional farmers.


Starting on Monday, July 1, visit one of the participating senior centers (see list below) and sign up for the program by paying $10 for a bag.

The following week, you’ll pick up your pre-packed food bag, filled with the fruits and vegetables that are in season.
