The 2023 Fresh Food for Seniors program is returning for its 11th year! Begun during my tenure as Borough President—and continued in partnership with B.P. Mark Levine—the program offers a bag of locally-grown fresh produce for $10 (a $15+ value) throughout the growing season. It’s pay-as-you go, not a subscription, so it’s a great value with no need for a commitment—just a little advance planning. Signup is simple: pay $10 cash about two weeks in advance at our prime pickup site, Goddard Riverside Older Adult Center (593 Columbus at 88th St). Then come get your produce on pickup day, between 1 – 3 pm at Goddard. 

For the first pickup only, place your orders Monday–Tuesday, 6/27–28, between 11 am and 1 pm at my District Office (563 Columbus Ave. at 87th St; please make sure to bring $10 in cash!). Then pick up your order on July 5 between 1–3 pm. Then, the schedule of pay-in-advance and pickup is as follows:
