Fresh Mobile Markets – Using partnerships and fresh produce to leverage healthier outcomes


We are the only organization in the Piedmont who operates 22 mobile food pantries; we call them  “Fresh Mobile Markets”.  We load our 26′ truck with food (including fresh produce, meat, bread and staple items) to take to  food deserts (locations with high need and little access to food) in Guilford County and pass out approximately 60+ pounds of food to families in need.   Everyone who comes must fill out a form and qualify by their income.  Families are eligible to receive food ONCE a month, and we ask that volunteers not work at the same market they receive food at.

Small groups of volunteers (up to 5) are welcome at the mobile markets.  We may ask you to lift 60 lbs, but there are other ways to help at the mobile market.

If you would like to volunteer at our Fresh Mobile Markets, please sign up here!
