Mobile Grocery Market | 2018
In 2018, StarkFresh is continuing to build upon their success through their Mobile Grocery Market. This year they are focusing on adding more stops to their routes, offering more produce options, and other food staples such as milk, eggs and bread. The market stops are strategically planned for sites where there are residents who struggle to access fresh, healthy foods due to physical or mental limitations. The mobile grocery market runs from June through October. Please see the flyer below with mobile grocery market stops, and photos from mobile markets throughout the year!
Active Transportation | 2018
A partnership between Live Well Stark County and Ernie's Bike Shop has the opportunity to offer "experiential learning" rides this year. We will be teaching individuals how to ride bicycles on the road for active commute purposes, in a safe, and practical manner. If you are interested in scheduling a ride please contact us!
Please see the photos below from previous rides.
