FierceHealthcare: Hospitals, Communities Team Up to Tackle Health Inequity

FierceHealthcare reported on AHS' work to improve access to healthy food through a weekly produce stand. The produce stand is the result of a partnership with Mandela Marketplace, a nonprofit in West Oakland that works in partnership with the community and family farmers to improve the health of low-income neighborhoods.

The market produce is sourced from sustainable farms located in the Salinas Valley from growers selected by Mandela for all of their community produce stands located throughout Alameda County. Additionally, the produce is pesticide free, sustainable and, most importantly, affordable.
