The first session of the farmers market started last Thursday.
“We had an amazing turnout with patients and their loved ones filling bags before we set everything out,” said Elisa Soulier, Intermountain Medical Center’s oncology LiVe Well program manager. “We distributed more than 404 pounds of produce — which would normally cost $1,030 — for free to our patients in the course of two hours. The gratitude expressed by those who filled their bags was overwhelming. Everyone said how hard it is to get to the store when they’re spending hours getting treatments, and they said how expensive it can get to buy fresh produce. Good nutrition is fundamental to their cancer care, so we’re so happy we could support their healing through this effort.”
News media are invited to cover Thursday’s free farmers market.
