ST. LOUIS — Food insecurity and lack of nutritious foods remain a part of daily life in thousands of St. Louis area households.

To address the shortcomings, the Gateway Region YMCA and Partnership for a Healthy America [PHA] will offer 3,000 families free boxes of produce containing 50 servings or fresh fruit and vegetables beginning May 31, 2022.

Each family will receive a box for 12 weeks through the ‘Good Food for All’ PHA program, which is supported by the Missouri Foundation for Health

The ‘Good Food for All’ produce boxes are provided by Ole Tyme Produce, and families can sign up to reserve boxes at www.ahealthieramerica.org/stlouis. The boxes will be distributed at one of eight YMCA locations.
