A Big Thank You: You Helped Ending Food Deserts!

The Plenty Campaign, in support of the Westside Mobile Food Market, has officially ended!

Over the past 90 days, more than 500 people signed the Plenty community pledge. Thanks to everyone for your unbelievable support and dedication. Every signature helps to end food deserts on Vancouver’s Westside.

For the mobile market it’s the end of a wonderful first season as well! Watching the ever-growing crowd of seniors shop at the mobile market and walk away smiling with bags full of fresh produce has been a delight. And a confirmation that projects like the Westside Mobile Food Market are needed on Vancouver’s Westside on an ongoing basis!

Thanks again for all your support!

The Perfect Mobile Market

Back in May 2013, Westside Mobile Food Market organizers and supporters got together over a cup of coffee for a visioning exercise. The task at hand was to dream and draw the perfect mobile market.

Looking back at these pictures now, it’s heart-warming to see how well the market has managed to stick to the initial vision: welcoming (check), community hub (check), accessible (check), healthy (yes)!

So proud of our partner, the Westside Mobile Food Market, and all they’ve achieved over the last three months.
