A new market on the ground floor of a Grady Memorial Hospital parking deck hopes to be a source of fresh food for Grady patients, hospital staff and local community members.

The Jesse Hill Market, which recently opened, is the result of a collaboration between the hospital, the Atlanta Community Food Bank and Open Hand Atlanta.

It will offer fruit, produce, grab-and-go meals and snacks for purchase, according to an announcement from the organizations.

“We know how important food is to health and wellness, which is why this work is more critical than ever,” food bank CEO Kyle Waide said in a statement. "Poor health and hunger are deeply connected; the exceptional work being done here will have a marked impact on the lives of many Grady patients by improving access to nutritious food.”
