The Veggie Mobile
The Veggie Mobile provides a solution to address the availability of local, healthy food throughout Lenawee County, by supporting local agricultural producers and increasing the availability of reasonably priced, nutrient dense, fresh food. By empowering the community to support local producers, the project establishes a source of healthy, farm-to-fork, food retail outlets in food deserts and low-income areas.
In 2014, the program took another step toward reducing food insecurity; a SNAP machine was obtained to extend SNAP recipients’ purchasing power and provide further access to fresh fruits and vegetables for low-income residents of Lenawee County. In 2017, the Veggie Mobile began supporting Tecumseh students through the Back Pack Buddies program, which allows 120 students to receive fruit and snacks to supplement meals on weekends.
