If you had to decide between food and medicine, which would you choose? Each night, nearly 15% of Arizona’s seniors face that very question. At Gregory’s Fresh Market (GFM), a division of Diana Gregory Outreach Services Foundation, we are committed to ending hunger and malnutrition among those who are often forgotten or ignored. We collaborate with over 20 organizations to bring healthy alternatives to seniors.
Gregory’s Fresh Market is Arizona’s mobile farmers market, which provides mature Americans, living in senior residential communities, with access to fresh produce. Since 2009, this 501(c)(3) organization has served more than 50,000 seniors in over 60 affordable and independent living facilities throughout the Greater Phoenix area. Many locations are in “food desert” areas. These are areas, where seniors have a need, but not always the resources, to access fresh fruits and vegetables. GFM provides independence for seniors, who lack mobility, and choices for food selection..
