Fresh Truck (a Mobile Farmers Market) Is Coming to Boston

A rather unique food "truck" is on its way to Boston, and it will be offering affordable produce to the city's neighborhoods.

According to their Facebook page and website, Fresh Truck will be up and running this spring, with a retrofitted school bus being used as what is basically a mobile farmers market. The bus will bring fresh fruits and vegetables to Boston residents, with its mission being to improve both community health and health literacy in the city, and the folks behind it will also host educational programming that focuses on eating healthy.

Once it is up and running, Fresh Truck will go to a number of neighborhoods on a daily basis, with the focus being on underserved sections of Boston. A weekly schedule will be posted once the bus gets going in the spring.

[July 9 update: The ONEin3 Blog states that Fresh Truck launches this Thursday (July 11) at City Hall Plaza in Boston.]

[July 11 update: According to its Facebook page, Fresh Truck will launch at City Hall Plaza today between the hours of 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM.]

The website for Fresh Truck can be found at http://thefreshtruck.org/ while the Facebook page is at https://www.facebook.com/thefreshtruck

Thanks to BostonTweet for bringing this to our attention.
