Louise Coulter, 76, was never a big fan of vegetables. But the fresh-picked tomatoes and green beans she received last year from a Cincinnati community garden were "a real treat."
The ripe produce was dropped off to Coulter at her apartment in a Cincinnati high-rise for low-income older adults, as part of her Meals on Wheels delivery. All the produce grown in AARP Ohio-sponsored beds in three community gardens was donated to a nonprofit that operates Meals on Wheels in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
