Fresh for All, the weekly produce market where fresh fruits and vegetables are distributed at no cost. The program, which was on hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, started back September 8 with new safety precautions for participants and volunteers. Fresh for All is now offered every Tuesday morning, distribution starts at 10 a.m., at a new location: 5500 block North 11th Street, between Tabor Road and Clarkson Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19141, on the Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia campus. We will also have information about mental health wellbeing and will be available for anyone interested to screen for depression and anxiety.
In response to COVID-19, the Substance Use Prevention & Harm Reduction Division (SUPHR) will be offering a live virtual overdose awareness and reversal training that will cover the basics of reversing an opioid overdose and additional COVID-19 risk reduction tips. Those who register & provide a shipping address can receive Narcan mailed to them after the training. If you have health insurance or are a well-resourced person, please consider paying for naloxone on your own, as this allows us to reserve our supply for those in our community who have the least access.
All are invited to receive a free behavioral health wellness screening provided by Temple University Hospital Outpatient Behavioral Health. There will be information on self-care, wellness, nutrition and more.
