Where to Find Lower Sodium Options

Fresh Food Generation is a food justice food truck launching in Summer 2014.  The truck will serve the neighborhoods of Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan with healthy, on-the-go meals sourced from local farms and reflective of the cultural food traditions of these communities.  Keep an eye out for Fresh Food Generation on the streets of Boston this summer.​

Supermarkets are the obvious choice for your food needs, but Boston’s Farmer's Markets are a great way to supplement your grocery shopping with fresh, local fruits and vegetables – even fish and other foods at some markets across the City.  It’s easy to turn a trip there into a day of good food, fresh air, and physical activity. 

Many farmers markets accept SNAP/EBT and participate in the Boston Bounty Bucks program which matches up to $10 of farmer's market purchases for SNAP users, making them affordable and convenient.  Visit the City of Boston to find a farmer's market close to you.​
