Mobile Markets

Cynthia receiving a box of food.

To reach neighbors in need in underserved communities, GBFB distributes high-quality, nutritious food through Mobile Markets hosted by our partner agencies. These free markets serve low-income populations including veterans, community health center patients, community colleges students and WIC program participants.

How does it work?

Following the delivery of food to partner sites, it’s set up in a farmer’s market style to allow clients to easily ‘shop’ at each table and choose from a diverse selection of fresh produce, dairy products, and high-protein items. Fresh produce makes up over 50% of the food distributed at Mobile Markets, which is a big help for people like Cynthia and her family.

By working in collaboration with our community partners, Mobile Markets take place in partnership with organizations that cross the public and nonprofit sectors, from state and local agencies to educational institutions to local community centers.
