Seniors can get bags filled with five or six kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables for $9 through a program sponsored by Gale Brewer and Helen Rosenthal.
The bags are filled with food from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania farmers, and are delivered to select sites once a week. People have to pay cash in advance at local sites, and then pick up the food the following week. Sign-up dates vary per site.
Delivery dates: 10/20, 11/3 and 11/17.
