Healthy Refrigeration Grant beneficiaries speak of refrigeration unit advantages in LA County video

The California Department of Food and Agriculture Office of Farm to Fork (CDFA-F2F) recently was allocated $20 million to continue its Healthy Refrigeration Grant Program. CDFA encourages interested parties to stay tuned for announcements about how to apply in the next round of this grant program that funds energy-efficient refrigeration units in corner stores and small businesses in low-income or low-access areas throughout the state, allowing them to stock California-grown fresh produce, nuts and minimally processed foods as well as meat, dairy, eggs and other foods.

Examples of Healthy Refrigeration Grant Program benefits can be seen in this video released by the County of Los Angeles Internal Services Department spotlighting four locations that received a refrigeration unit through the first round of grants.
