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, seniors, veterans, community health center patients, and students.

How does it work?

Following the delivery of food to partner sites, Mobile Markets are 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 much of the food distributed at Mobile Markets, which is a big help for people like Cynthia and her family.

Mobile Markets take place in partnership with organizations across the public and nonprofit sectors, including state and local agencies, educational institutions, and local community centers.
