ROCHESTER — Foodlink’s Curbside Market program recently added a wheelchair-accessible truck to its fleet.
The truck debuted on Aug. 15 at Andrews Terrace on St. Paul Street, which is one of the most popular sites for the program that offers fresh, affordable produce for sale to residents who lack access to them in the Rochester region, according to information from Foodlink.
The Curbside Market makes weekly stops at more than 60 locations in Monroe and several neighboring counties. Locations include affordable-housing complexes, senior citizen facilities and health centers that qualify for federal funding.
Foodlink also announced that it has joined Double Up Food Bucks, which is a Michigan-based program created by the Fair Food Network. The program doubles the value of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, which were formerly called food stamps.
