Twin Cities Mobile Market Now a Program of The Food Group
The Food Group and Amherst H. Wilder Foundation are pleased to announce that Twin Cities Mobile Market is now a program of The Food Group.
Twin Cities Mobile Market is a grocery store on a bus that brings affordable foods—such as fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy and grains—directly to Twin Cities neighborhoods that don’t have nearby grocery stores or food shelves. It started five years ago as a Wilder program.
The Mobile Market began in 2014 as a program of the Wilder Foundation. “Wilder often acts as an incubator for new program models that have capacity for greater impact beyond the organization,” said Nona Ferguson, Wilder vice president of programs. “The transition to the Food Group is an opportunity for the Mobile Market to grow and better meet the needs of the community.”
Thank you to all the customers, volunteers, partners and staff who helped make the Mobile Market a success during its time at Wilder!
