Farewell to Diane

Blog / Farewell to Diane

In January we said goodbye to Diane, our first ever Mobile Market, and sent her off to a well-deserved retirement. We bought Diane back in 2O13 with funds from a Kickstarter campaign and a generous donation by Building Restoration Services who volunteered their services to do the retrofitting. From there, Fresh Truck launched and started providing fresh food across Boston!

Diane was named in honor of one of our very first shoppers, who lived at the Hearth at Olmsted Green in Dorchester. Diane was a mentor to everyone in her community with her advocacy and knowledge of nutrition and food as medicine. She was an early inspiration to the Fresh Truck as we refined our mission and our programming.

In the five years that Diane (the truck) was on the roads, she ran 2,OOO weekly markets and pop-ups and sold 2OO,OOO bananas. We’re going to miss her around here and wish her a relaxing retirement!

She got a makeover

Diane occasionally had mechanical issues…

But, she handled everything that Boston’s weather threw at her

Most importantly, she provided fresh fruits and veggies to thousands of satisfied customers!
