Mobile Food Market Pilot Project Hits the Road

DSC_0198_wm

This morning saw the launch of the pilot project “Mobile Food Market” from the East Preston Community Center, and it was met with smiling faces and a supportive crowd.

The Mobile Food Market is the cities’ idea to bring healthy food to communities where local stores may be too expensive or too difficult to access.  With Loblaws / Superstore providing fresh produce and healthy food to the program, and Metro Transit providing the wheels for the market, this 21 week pilot project starts rolling today with the first stop in North Preston.  Nutritionists and healthy eating information will roll along with the market, providing important information for communities the Market will visit.

Crowds of volunteers and community members cheered and applauded the announcement today.  Mayor Mike Savage gave a speech on the importance of this project, and both Federal and Provincial Agriculture Ministers were on hand to show support.  Many other partners included Doctors Nova Scotia, East Preston United Baptist Church and many many more (displayed and listed on the official webpage).  All partners are eager to see this project go from Pilot to Permanent.
