Wood River Health Services brings mobile food market to Richmond

Celebrating National Health Center Week

A new concept in providing healthy food in areas where it may be hard to find, Food on the Move is a mobile produce market that also accepts WIC and SNAP benefits, and it’s coming to Richmond.

As part of its celebration of National Health Center Week, Wood River Health Services in Hope Valley is partnering with the Arcadia YMCA to bring Food on the Move to Chariho Plaza, 1190 Main St, Wyoming (in front of the old Cycle Brothers store) on Tuesday, Aug 9, from 2 – 4 p.m.

The event will also feature free health screenings and information, the Y’s sports inflatables for the kids, infant car seat safety checks by Richmond Police, and equipment and activities provided by Hope Valley/Wyoming Fire District and Hope Valley Ambulance.

National Health Center Week is celebrated annually to bring attention to the work done by Community Health Centers like Wood River Health in providing quality, affordable care to the communities in which they are located.

Wood River Health Services is the Federally Qualified Community Health Center for southwestern Rhode Island, providing medical, dental and behavioral healthcare and care management to over 7,000 area residents.

The health center also administers the area WIC (Women, Infants and Children) Nutrition Program, provides a nationally recognized chronic disease management program, has available onsite lab testing in cooperation with Westerly Hospital, including blood work, x-ray and mammography, and provides emergency assistance and referrals to those in need.

Sliding scale payments are available to those who qualify.

Wood River Health Services is located at 823 Main St., Hope Valley (on Route 3 south of the village, just off Route I-95 at Exit 2).
