Massachusetts Avenue Project’s (MAP’s) Buffalo Grown Mobile Market delivers organic, locally-grown, affordable produce to Buffalo’s low-income, food insecure neighborhoods. Buffalo Grown Mobile Market travels regularly to drop-off sites where it sells fresh fruits and vegetables and bulk items, like rice and beans. MAP works with local community partners to identify drop-off sites that serve people most in need, such as health and senior centers. The group grows the majority of the produce it sells on its own urban farm and offers onsite nutrition education for market patrons. In 2010, MAP’s Mobile Market vehicle became inoperable. Financing from the HFHC Fund will allow MAP to purchase and retrofit a new vehicle so that it may continue to bring healthy, local food to the residents of Buffalo’s most underserved communities.
