  On August 24, 2019 in the
town of North Babylon, Cornell Cooperative Extension Eat Smart NY of Suffolk County coordinated a community
day event at the Mega Wash Laundromat. Wyandanch Legislator, Dwayne Gregory acknowledged laundromat owner, Arty Barbuto, for supporting the importance
of nutrition by allowing ESNY nutrition educators to meet with his customers on a monthly basis throughout the past 2 years, as patrons wait for their laundry.
Nearly 100 adults and families joined in the days’ activities. Families and children enjoy learning about making healthful food and beverage choices and are provided nutrition tips and other support for eating the MyPlate way. A Proclamation of Support was presented to the owner by Legislator Gregory. Partner agency, FREE, offered fresh produce to participants. As a result of our educators work, beverage vending machines are now stocked with more water and less sugary sweetened beverages.
