New Farm Fresh Partnership: AfterZone and Roch’s Work Together to Get Students Healthy Snacks

This summer, the AfterZone is partnering with Rhode Island’s Roch’s Produce to provide healthy snacks from local farmers. 

Roch’s is a Rhode Island born and operated produce market and wholesaler that was started by Joseph Roch as a family business in the mid-1930s. They offer year-round fresh produce and strive to source as much of that produce as possible from local Rhode Island farmers. 

Students participating in the Summer Scholars Camp will receive fresh fruits and vegetables in snack packs each morning to ease the summer heat! The Roch’s partnership is both cost-effective (providing students with healthy produce only costs .50 per student), and furthers PASA’s commitment to providing our young people with healthy food choices.
