Fourth Ward Councilwoman Renee Baskerville and the Township of Montclair are partnering with Hackensack Meridian Health Mountainside Medical Center, Partners for Health and City Green, to once again welcome the City Green Veggie Mobile – a mobile farm stand that brings fresh produce and other healthful foods to Montclair’s South End district.
The Veggie Mobile will be at the Garden State Community Bank parking lot, 323 Orange Road from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on the following days:
September 13 and 27
October 11 and 25
The mobile farm stand accepts SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) cards, WIC (Women, Infants, and Children), SFMNP (Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program) vouchers and cash as payment. The Veggie Mobile also helps to stretch families’ dollars.
Through mid-August, more than $10,000 of locally grown fruits and vegetables have been provided in Montclair, Bloomfield, Clifton and Little Falls. City Green farm stands in these communities have served 170+ federal benefit customers (SNAP, WIC and Senior FMNP).
City Green also supports the Montclair Farmers’ Market (MFM) and the Nutley Farmers’ Market in providing Good Food Buck incentive dollars to SNAP, WIC, and Senior FMNP customers through the Garden State Good Food Network Double Value Coupon Program (DVCP). They anticipate serving nearly 650 federal benefit customers at the Montclair market by the end of the 2017 season.
