Mobile Food Market Feeds Thousands In The Triad
By NAOMI PRIOLEAU • DEC 6, 2017
Five days a week and twice on Saturdays, a 26-foot-long truck filled with food stops at various schools in Guilford County.
Families arrive by car and by foot to receive the 60-plus-pounds of food that’s handed out, at no cost, as part of a fresh mobile market. The boxes are filled produce, meats, sweets, fruit, pizza and a variety of other items. The mobile food market is organized by the Out of the Garden Project, a nonprofit that began in 2009 as a way to feed hungry children in the Triad.
“I don’t care who you are, whether you have children or not, who could possibly say children shouldn’t eat,” the project’s CEO Don Milholin said.
