On February 25th, C. Warren Moses, Children’s Aid’s CEO, and families from the East Harlem Center joined other Green Carts advocates on the steps of City Hall for a rally.

The New York City Council is considering legislation that would create 1,500 new permits for Green Carts that sell fresh fruits and vegetables on the streets in low-income neighborhoods. Many families in these neighborhoods do not have access to quality, affordable produce, contributing to health problems from obesity to heart disease.
