The Food Retail Expansion to Support Health (FRESH) program is designed to facilitate the development of stores selling a full range of food products with an emphasis on fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and other perishable goods. It provides zoning incentives for neighborhood grocery stores to locate in some of the most underserved neighborhoods in the City with primarily pedestrian-oriented, local shopping districts.
