A disproportionate percentage of residents in Southeastern San Diego suffer from chronic, life-threatening diseases that can be traced to diet and nutrition, exacerbated by a severe shortage of places offering fresh, affordable produce. The Project New Village People’s Produce Urban Agriculture Initiative is a grassroots, neighborhood-based initiative which utilizes a social determinant of health model to address inequities and to promote universal access to good food as a viable avenue to better health

The October 25th Grand Re-opening of the People’s Produce Certified farmers Market will feature a special wellness hour, 2:00pm – 3:00pm featuring healthy food sampling, a fitness class, and free give-away of healthy cook books, pedometers and more At 2:30pm Supervisor Greg Cox, City Council member Myrtle Cole and other health and community leaders will address the community.
