Organic Farm Stand is New Addition to FunDay Mondays
North Hempstead, NY – Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board are proud to announce that FunDay Monday events now offer local, fresh organic produce through its new FunDay FarmDay program with help from Young¹s Farm of Brookville.
Seniors at FunDay Monday can stop by the farm stand between 12 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to pick farm fresh favorites including scallions, onions, beets, carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, watermelon, string beans and much more!
"We are so excited about this new addition to our FunDay Mondays,² said Supervisor Bosworth. ³Giving seniors a convenient way to purchase healthy and locally-grown produce is one more way the Town is helping our seniors to maintain good health and vitality."
FunDay Monday is a service of North Hempstead¹s Project Independence that offers seniors engaging activities including games, live music, dancing, yoga, and refreshments every Monday during the summer from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All events are held at North Hempstead Beach Park.
