Project Fresh, a program at Kent County’s Health Department, is working to provide Michigan-grown fruits and vegetables to some of its clients.
"Eating healthy can be expensive, and it’s hard sometimes to get fresh fruits and vegetables."
Abbey Bishop is the department’s WIC supervisor.
She says they’re providing clients of the special supplemental nutrition program (SNAP) the opportunity to get fresh fruits and vegetables from area farmers markets.
She says programs like this are very important.
