Developed in partnership between the Greater Boston Food Bank and the Lynn Community Health Center, the Lynn Food Market is a monthly event that provides fresh fruits and vegetables to the community.
In Lynn, one in five residents is food insecure, according to LCHC, and 76 percent of Lynn Public School students are eligible for free or reduced lunch. Food insecurity subsequently affects people’s health. Members of food-insecure households are at higher risk of developing such chronic diseases as obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
CCA proudly supports the event, sending volunteers and providing reusable insulated bags each month.
