MOBILE FOOD MARKET

The Mobile Food Market brings fresh, local foods to Albany County.

 

Feeding Laramie Valley’s Mobile Food Market program aims to increase fresh food access for all members of the Albany County community through traveling sales. The “grocery store on wheels” has been constructed on a charming 1973 Bluebird school bus, which makes it possible for us to travel to Centennial, Rock River, Wood’s Landing, and South & West Laramie with fresh produce and bulk dry goods. With the help of our team, our community of volunteers and our partnership with Big Hollow Food Co-Op, the renovation and planning of the bus is underway. We cannot wait to welcome patrons onto the bus to shop our locally-stocked aisle!

 

Through this project, we will be able to support the areas of our county that have higher rates of food insecurity by bringing the grocery store to you! Albany County has the highest rate of food insecurity in Wyoming at 17.6%, with the county’s poverty rate of 26% also being the highest for the sate. While our mission is to serve communities farther from access to fresh foods by lowering barriers, we welcome everyone to shop the Mobile Food Market.  

 

This social venture is profit-based. Each purchase will help support Feeding Laramie Valley’s free programs, including our Shares and Kids Out to Lunch programs. 

 

What we've accomplished so far...

The renovation of the bus has included painting the interior and exterior, reupholstering seats, installing new flooring, fixing windows, overcoming mechanical challenges, building a shelving and plumbing system, and outfitting the space with refrigerators, a hand sink, and a bulk bin dispenser. In addition to the renovations, our team has worked tirelessly to market for the project via social media, has been rigidly keeping up with city and state mobile food requirements, and has started recruiting vendors.
