Gregory’s Fresh Market (GFM), a division of Diana Gregory Outreach Services and a 501 (c)(3) organization, is a one-aisle mobile produce market which operates in senior communities without easy access to healthy food. Through a holistic approach, including education to increase senior understanding and acceptance of making healthy food choices, community organizing and advocacy, Gregory’s Fresh Market is working to restore meaningful food access and eliminate health disparities in under-resourced communities. Community dwelling seniors who participate in Gregory’s Fresh Market will not only have access to fresh produce, they will also have the opportunity to regularly participate in educational programs that teach simple solutions for healthy cooking, healthy eating and incorporating appropriate fitness. The mission is to enrich lives.

Expanding your options by incorporating nutrient valuable, energy-sustaining items can be easier than you think.
