Fresh Truck Volunteer Event
September 18 @ 12:45 pm - 3:15 pm
Register here to join BYHP for a group volunteer shift with Fresh Truck on September 18 from 12:45 to 3:15pm. The Fresh Truck mobile market is located at 3 Quincy St, Boston, MA 02121 near the corner of Warren St and Quincy St. Space is limited!
Fresh Truck’s mission is to strengthen communities by getting fresh food to the households that need it most. They work to improve community health by celebrating food culture and strengthening communities with the food they need.
The Fresh Truck mobile markets are a food justice program designed to use reimagined vehicles to increase access to fresh food in traditionally marginalized communities. By bringing the shopping experience closer to people, Fresh Truck can provide more opportunities for households to use SNAP/HIP benefits.
During these weekly mobile markets, Fresh Truck staff and volunteers set up to run a dignified shopping experience for communities to have the option of selecting from a variety of quality fruits and vegetables at affordable prices.
As a volunteer, you will directly support the Fresh Truck Mobile Markets by:
• Filling and bagging shopper orders
• Greeting & handing out tickets
• Helping customers enter and exit the bus
• Restocking shelves, breaking down cardboard boxes
• Helping to maintain all health and safety protocols
