Urban Growers Collective’s goal is to bring the benefits of healthy, locally grown produce and other foods to Chicago’s communities while supporting the growth of Chicago’s urban farmers.
Urban Growers Collective’s Fresh Moves Mobile Market uses converted city buses as mobile farmers markets. ‘The produce aisle on wheels’ works toward closing the ‘food access’ gap by bringing produce to schools, community and health centers — places that folks already frequent — to help customers easily buy nutritious produce. Customers board bus and fill their bags with delicious local vegetables, produce and fruit. Produce is priced to be affordable for all and fair return for the farmers.
Fresh Moves has the renewed opportunity to support healthy dietary choices and through access to consistent good food, support and information and health and school partners to provide a web of support to reverse diet related diseases and health disparities. Connecting with children and their families is a critical concern.
Fresh Moves is made possible by our generous sponsors: Barilla US, Chicago Transit Authority, and customers like you.
