REC Launches Mobile Market

The Regional Environmental Council, Inc. has launched its Mobile Farmers Market! With funding support from Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare Foundation, the Health Foundation of Central MA, United Way, USDA, Mass in Motion and others, this WRTA donated and rehabed van will be driving around Worcester selling fruits and veggies at 10 different sites! The market accepts all forms of payment including Cash, Credit, Debit, EBT/Food Stamps, WIC, and Senior Coupons! All EBT/Food Stamp purchases are HALF OFF!!
This is a very exciting step towards more equitable fresh food access throughout Worcester.  Several of the stops are in USDA defined Food Desert areas, or areas where the access to food is limited and the income levels are low (of which there are three in Worcester – Main South, Bell Hill, and Great Brook Valley).  

Here’s the schedule for the rest of the season!
