Rolling Grocer 19 (RG19) is a non-profit, year-round, mobile grocery store that hits the streets of Hudson starting September 19 and will be located in front of the library on Saturdays from 1:30-4pm.
Developed in collaboration with local Hudson residents, RG19 is a community-led response to solve real challenges around food and economic inequality in our county. RG19 will offer a wide range of wholesome products, including fresh produce, dairy, bread, meat, seafood, canned and dry goods, toiletries and other miscellaneous products. Food on the trailer will be made affordable through a fair pricing system: customers will self-select into one of three price levels and pay for products according to their financial ability.

The library’s “Fizz, Boom, Read!” summer programming for youth kicked off with “Food Scientists,” a two-day program taught by Cornell Cooperative Extension Nutrition Educator Jaime O’Donnell.
The kids learned that celery sitting in a cup of food coloring will draw the color into its stalk and that vinegar and baking soda create a foamy fizz. They also learned why sugar is bad for one’s body and took turns measuring how much sugar is in soda and energy drinks. Ms. Jaime finished up the program by helping the kids make healthy strawberry banana smoothies.
Thank you to Ms. Jaime for kicking off our summer children’s events with such a fun and educational program!
