As part of nonprofit GrowNYC’s hands-on urban agriculture and nutrition program, “Learn It Grow It Eat it,” each summer teen interns run a farm stand in Morrisania stocked with fresh produce grown by regional farmers and some the teens grew themselves in Bronx community gardens they tend. While the kids are helping increase access to fresh food in a neighborhood that is lacking it, they’re also teaching their communities about nutrition and healthy eating through workshops, cooking demos, healthy food location hand-outs. The market accepts EBT, WIC, Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program (FMNP), and Health Bucks.
