Healthy Food Programs: Mercy Health Youngstown is offering programs this summer that help put healthy foods onto the plates of people across the Mahoning Valley. The anchor program is the Farmer’s Market at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital, Belmont Avenue, which is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays through October in the hospital’s Park Avenue lobby.

Two additional Mercy Health initiatives that enhance access to healthy ingredients are the Double Up and Fruit and Vegetable Prescription programs. Double Up enables people using Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits to double-up their produce purchases at three markets in the Mahoning Valley: St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital; Idora Neighborhood Farmer’s Market, Youngstown, and Farmer’s Market at Courthouse Square, Warren, both on Tuesdays.
