Our mission/vision

Demolishing barriers that food deserts build, and connecting communities to the diverse people and resources that nourish us all.

Healthy food promotes healthy minds, bodies, and relationships. Through the creation of the Mobile Produce Pantry (MPP), we hope to demolish the walls that food deserts build and connect communities to the people and resources that nourish peaceful diversity.

The MPP was developed to strengthen Richmond’s food chains, focusing on improving food security in areas that currently lack access to fresh and healthy produce.

We partner with existing pantries to improve food distribution capacity, providing a mobile model that directly supplements food offerings to the community. Our model is being blueprinted so other pantries may have their own MPP.

The MPP has proven demand for reliable access to fresh & healthy produce not only exists but is urgently needed.

60,000 lbs of produce distributed since 2017

6 Distributions per month

250+ families served each month

We are grateful to improve distribution and foster food security in the communities that need it most with our partners:
