UHC and Food Bank of CNY to Bring Free Fresh Produce “Pop-Up” Markets to Syracuse on August 24, 2019

Through a $15,000 donation, UnitedHealthcare will work with Food Bank of CNY to provide free fresh produce at two free pop-up markets in Syracuse’s Southside and Westside neighborhoods.

This program aims to improve access to nutrition and help people in Central New York – where one in eight individuals is food insecure – lead healthier lives.
