If the people can’t come to the food, then the food must come to the people! That’s the concept behind the Westside Mobile Food Market: to bring fresh food to people who need it.
From July 18 until the end of September, this not-for-profit market on wheels — the first of its kind to service Vancouver's Westside — will stop at community gathering places and deliver fresh, affordable fruits and vegetables to seniors who would have a hard time accessing fresh produce otherwise.
To kick off the mobile market’s first season, “The Plenty Campaign” (in support of the Westside Mobile Market) will raise awareness for Westside seniors experiencing food insecurity. The public will be invited to show their support by signing a community pledge — online or at Vancouver Farmers’ Markets and various other community events.
