INITIATIVES & PROJECTS
The Healthy Food Business Initiative principal objective is to increase production and access to healthy foods in food deserts, along with employment creation to low income individuals within our service area. This project has established semi-mobile healthy food retail outlets (“business units”) for emerging new entrepreneurs interested in providing products and services to communities in need. These retail outlets will increase to ten additional units to be located in high-demand, underserved areas of Western Puerto Rico. The Healthy Food Business Initiative pursues the creation of points of sale for fresh healthy products while expanding farm businesses, enhancing and creating new distribution routes and performing community revitalization through informational and educational campaigns on the positive impacts that healthy foods provide.
