IMG_20131016_132107In the fall of 2013, LA CAN opened a pop-up produce market in South LA in the neighborhood where the Pueblo Del Rio Public Housing Development is located.

Once a week, we provide organic produce at a price affordable to the low-income residents of this food insecure community. We also accept EBT/CalFresh. Additionally, we organize food demonstrations, conduct nutrition education workshops, and distribute healthy recipes for dishes that can be made with our produce.

To date, LA CAN has been able to bring in over 14 tons of organic, low-cost fruits and vegetables in a part of the city where only 51%-68% of residents say it is easy to access fresh produce.
