A produce isle on wheels keeps New York residents healthy

"The Veggie Mobile is a produce aisle on wheels, run out of a box truck, with refrigerators and shelves displaying fruits and vegetables for sale.

The truck was retrofitted to suit the needs of the program by an amazing crew of multi-talented local volunteers. Solar panels sit atop the roof to collect power to run refrigeration units and other electrical equipment. The truck runs on biodiesel and is equipped with an awesome sound system that plays lively music to announce its’ arrival at our scheduled market stops."
