What’s one solution to poor access to healthy and affordable foods? Many communities are turning to mobile farmers’ markets.grandrapidsVV

In urban Michigan neighborhoods throughout Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Ottawa County, a Veggie Van run by the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids is bringing fresh produce to families—and at affordable prices.

Because the Veggie Van is a non-profit organization, it is able to sell fruits and vegetables at wholesale prices, giving the community a cheaper option for fresh produce.

The Veggie Van travels to retirement homes, human services offices and neighborhoods.
