Green Mountain Farm-to-School
Help Green Mountain Farm-to-School launch a Mobile Farmers' Market to bring good food to communities in need. 

This June, with support from Senator Bernie Sanders and the USDA Farmers’ Market Promotion Program, Green Mountain Farm-to-School is hitting the road in a new mobile farmers’ market to meet the need for food access in rural Vermont.

Each week we’ll pack The Lunchbox, a stepvan equipped with refrigeration and a commercial kitchen, with the freshest food from over a dozen local farms and bring a pop-up farmers' market to low-income housing sites and community centers in four designated “food deserts” in the Northeast Kingdom.

We've got the truck and the sites lined up, and the bounty is being planted—now we need your help to ensure that that food is accessible and affordable to as many people as possible. Join us in establishing the Green Mountain Food Access Fund, a matching gift program that offsets the premium of local food for shoppers with the greatest need. With your help, we can ensure that the abundance of Vermont’s farms leads to an abundance of health in every home this growing season.

Here's how you can come along for the ride:
  • Vote for our project in the International Women's Day Challenge on GOOD Maker at www.oxfamamerica.maker.good.is/projects/VTMobileMarket . Less than 1 minute of your time will help us secure $1,000.
  • Share this message with your friends through email, facebook, and twitter.
  • Visit the mobile market this summer: Tuesdays from 10-1 in Island Pond, Tuesdays from 2:30-6 in Irasburg, Wednesdays from 10-2 in North Troy, and Wednesdays from 3-6 in Newport.
  • Donate to the Green Mountain Food Access Fund directly at www.greenmountainfarmtoschool.org/donate.php. Every $10 you give will make healthy, local food accessible to 2 people for one week.
Thank you for all of your support for Green Mountain Farm-to-School and our work to promote the health of Vermont's children, farms, and communities. 

Best wishes, 

Katherine Sims
Executive Director
