The newest Curbside Market vehicle is also its largest ever.
The new truck helps modernize the fleet for Foodlink’s mobile farmers market, which visits more than 70 weekly sites (90+ during its peak season) to increase access to healthy foods in underserved neighborhoods. Funding for the vehicle was made possible by Foodlink’s grant award from the USDA through the Local Food Promotion Program in 2018.
The interior is spacious by design. The primary purpose for the vehicle — eventually — is for Foodlink to become the state’s first mobile WIC vendor. The Women, Infants and Children program assists new, low-income mothers with purchasing healthy foods, and includes a range of products beyond fruits and vegetables. Once approved, this vehicle will expand its inventory and offer more products to customers.
