YNDC Taking Applications for Fresh Market Free Food Program - WKBN

The Youngstown Neighborhood Development is beginning to sign people up for its Glenwood Fresh Market nutrition incentive program. 

The program allows qualifying community members to receive $25 worth of free produce each month per household member. 

“We’re working with people that are low income families, so families can qualify by receiving SNAP benefits or living under the 200% poverty guidelines,” said Susan Payton, Glenwood Fresh Market manager.

Last year, a survey was done in the Glenwood Corridor area and many of the residents said they would like to see a market come to the area.

“This is one of the things that they were saying, that they wanted something locally they wouldn’t have to go and travel very far to get the fruits and vegetables and things that they needed,” said Patricia Stokes, who conducted the survey.
