Spring is here (we think)

Blog / Spring is here (we think)

Last time we checked in, we let you know that we were trading in our dress clothes for flannels to hit the road for our first winter. We ended up needing more than just a flannel… because of a slight miscalculation with the mechanical requirements of running heat in a fruit bus, we had to ride out the winter in the cold— big ups to Randy for gutting it out.

Aside from some minor frostbite and a few dead batteries, we made it through our first winter:

We’re most excited about our new partnerships with Rosie’s Place, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston Public Schools! With the help of these wonderful organizations, we’re delivering more than 100 bags of fresh produce each month to food-insecure families around Boston.

April 9, 2016; South End Community Health Center, Weekly Food Rx Market

We have also launched the first ever Fresh Truck Food Rx Pilot site, sponsored by the South End Community Health Center. Patients of the health center can pick up a $5.00 Food Rx Gift Card to shop on Fresh Truck every Friday from 4:00pm- 6:00pm. This program is being sponsored by the South End Community Health Center.

This spring, we’ll be expanding our Weekly Market sites and hosting even more programs each month. Stay tuned for more winter recaps, spring updates, volunteer/ internship opportunities and even a chance to bike for Fresh Truck, coming soon!
