Kellyn Mobile Market – Kellyn Foundation
Sep 22 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 3:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until Oct 27, 2020
The “Eat Real Food” Mobile Market is a combined initiative of the Two Rivers Health and Wellness Foundation and Kellyn Foundation, connecting the “Healthy Lifestyles” education that Kellyn Schools provides children in the classroom to the their families and friends in the community. The Mobile Market also provides healthy food access to seniors in many local housing facilities and to residents in neighborhoods without easy access to a grocery store. We source as much locally farmed fruits and vegetables as we can get seasonally, in addition to providing produce that is not available in our area but is part of a nutritious diet.
Each of our weekly site stops includes produce sampling and an educational component, such as nutrition, cooking, exercise, gardening or chronic disease screening. Our objective is to connect with the families and engage in a healthy lifestyle discussion, providing healthy food access at an affordable price. The “Eat Real Food” Mobile Market visits multiple sites on a regular weekly schedule and provides the opportunity and knowledge for families to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
