On Thursday, the Bi-State Development and Metro will launch two fresh food kiosks to North St. Louis County.
The initiative will see the implementation of the Link Market Food Kiosk pilot program that will be located at the North Hanley and Wellston Transit Centers in North St. Louis County. The food kiosks will offer healthier food options to Metro transit riders and nearby residents.
According to Bi-State Development, this initiative will help provide fresh food who do not have convenient access to fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy food staples.
The Bi-State Development Research Insitute, a non-profit enterprise of Bi-State Development, was awarded a $583,958 grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health to fund the 18-month Link Market pilot program.
