About Fresh is suspending Fresh Truck mobile markets immediately, starting Friday, March 13

To protect About Fresh shoppers and help slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), About Fresh is temporarily suspending its Fresh Truck Mobile Markets starting immediately, on Friday, March 13. Markets will remain closed for the foreseeable future.  

About Fresh regrets having to take this sudden step. We have made this difficult decision in light of information from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Center for Disease Control. 

In the weeks ahead, we intend to collaborate with our community partners, other food-access organizations, and the City of Boston to find other ways to get healthy food to those who need it. We will post updates about any new opportunities this creates to use your SNAP or HIP benefits to purchase fresh produce when we have news to share. 

At About Fresh, we are inspired by our vision of a day when everyone has the food they need to be happy, healthy, and hopeful. We look forward to re-opening our Fresh Truck Mobile Markets as soon as the MA DPH determines that the risk of continued Coronavirus spread has declined enough for us to do so. 

Until then, we wish everyone – our neighbors, our shoppers, our partners, and our staff – good health. 

Thank you.
