[ARCHIVED] Harvest Market: Grocery Store on Wheels

The Harvest Market is a grocery store on wheels that brings fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, dairy and other essentials to communities that would otherwise lack access to healthy foods.   The healthier food options available at the Harvest Market will help improve health outcomes and decrease the incidence of chronic nutrition-based diseases for food-insecure people.  

The mission is to increase access to healthy food choices with an emphasis on reaching those least served in a food desert.

The goals include:
Relieve food insecurity.
Improve healthy dietary awareness, skills, and behaviors.
Provide a grocery store in neighborhoods.
Increase community capacity for local and regional fruits and vegetables.
