History of Mrs. Frances Nash

 

The program is named after Frances Nash, wife of Rev. J. Edward Nash. After attending various health lectures, Mrs. Nash developed an interest in nutrition and  became an advocate for healthy eating. She became knowledgeable about vitamins, food-groups, proteins, and starches. In the 1940s, Mrs. Nash developed a large vegetable garden in the back of her home at 36 Potter Street. For many years this garden supplied the neighborhood and the Nash’s friends with organically grown foods.

Individuals who would like to get involved are encouraged to reach out to the Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor Commission by calling 716-322-1002 or emailing aclark@michiganstreetbuffalo.org.
