About Food on the Move
Food on the Move believes that everyone deserves healthy food. Our year-round mobile markets bring fresh, healthy produce to the people and places that need it most. We make healthy food more accessible by bringing markets to senior housing sites and community locations, and more affordable by doubling the value of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) dollars spent on fruits and vegetables.
