Benton Harbor: Healthy & Mobile

he Be Healthy Berrien mobile farm market, a partnership with Andrews University's student garden, is ready to roll, starting today. 

The truck, carrying locally grown produce to communities with limited access to fresh foods, will run five days a week to seven locations, reported Nicki Britten, Berrien County Health Department's director of community health.
