The Veggie Van: Fresh Food Justice

The Veggie Van: Fresh Food Justice

"Lack of access to food in a community is an indicator of material deprivation." Columbus, OH based Veggie Van is a mobile farmers' market that brings food justice in the form of fresh, local and organic produce to underserved communities...

Partnered with non-profit Local Matters and The Greener Grocer, the Veggie Van services communities lacking access to healthy, nutritious food because of poor transportation and grocery store options. The van sets up in parks, parking lots and even office spaces to sell food. The Van is even equipped to accept EBT cards (food stamps) as well as cash and credit cards.

The Veggie Van currently visits almost 30 scheduled locations weekly. If you're interested in adding your neighborhood as a stop, contact Local Matters.
