Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano presented the city's first Access to Healthy Food Award to Juices for Life, a juicery on Nepperhan Avenue.

"I think it's our job in government as well, not just to take care of our community, but to help our community take care of themselves," Spano said.

The smoothie bar serves a wide variety of juices and healthy options to customers, something Yonkers residents say isn't easy to find.

"This is one of the few places in the area that you can actually come in and almost everything is all natural and all great," said Richardo Jimenez.

But the biggest reason Juices for Life is being recognized is for their efforts beyond the juice bar, including after school programs at the nearby Nepperhan Community Center, and other efforts in the area.
