Mobile Produce Market will start June 7, 2019
When families can afford a healthy diet, communities get healthier.
York Fresh Food Farms will launch the second year of its Mobile Produce Market operation, a shuttle bus customized into a farm-stand-on-wheels, on June 7, 2019 (weather permitting).
The Mobile Produce Market will operate from June to the first week in November to bring high quality, affordable, farm-fresh produce to underserved and food insecure neighborhoods and to City residents with limited transportation.
The Mobile Produce Market accepts SNAP Benefits/EBT, WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks, Food Bucks, WellSpan Market Bucks vouchers, cash, credit and debit.
To better serve low income customers, York Fresh Food Farms is participating in The Food Trust’s (Philadelphia, PA) Food Bucks program that will boost the buying power of customers using SNAP. With Food Bucks, every $5 SNAP purchase will entitle that customer to a $2 Food Bucks coupon to buy more produce: buy $5 with SNAP and get $7.
The Mobile Produce Market operation is an important step towards achieving York Fresh Food Farms’ goals of providing nutritious, organically grown produce to underserved York City residents, addressing food access inequities, spreading the word about nutritious, good tasting fruits and vegetables and eating healthy and increasing the consumption of fruits and vegetables in the City of York.
