I hope this email finds you doing well. I am a Regional Project Officer for Project CHANGE, an initiative under My Brother?s Keeper (MBK), Inc. MBK is a non-profit organization founded and located right here in the city of Jackson. We have been in existence for over 15 years and we are working to eliminate health disparities among underserved, uninsured/underinsured and, other vulnerable populations through health education, health promotion, policy and environmental systems changes, and other health equity approaches. MBK?s efforts have expanded to include a wealth of health issues, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and cancer, I am contacting you in hopes that WYAB will be able to post information online or on-air regarding the Jump Start Jackson Farmers Market at Lake Hico hosted by MBK. The market will be held every Saturday beginning Saturday, July 12th from 8am until 12pm and continue until Saturday, August 30th. The market will be open each Saturday morning from 8am-noon and will serve as a hub for residents to gain access and purchase fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables.If you are a farmer interested in selling your some of your produce at this free event, please contact Shamir Lee by phone at (601) 898-xxxx ext. 122 ASAP to receive more information.
