Help Arcadia Launch a Second Mobile Market!

Arcadia is participating in Spring2Action's Day of Giving on April 9, 2014, and we're trying to raise $30,000 to grow our Mobile Market program, and purchase, and outfit, a second Mobile Market vehicle. The new vehicle will support ongoing Market activities through transportation and distribution, and will help us to increase our number of Market stops. You can schedule your donation to support out campaign today HERE.       

Over the past two season's, Arcadia's Mobile Market has increased access to fresh, sustainable, healthy, local foods in the DC area's underserved neighborhoods. We've sold over $110,000 of food in those communities, with over $40,000 in sales to households receiving SNAP, WIC, Seniors FMNP, and other nutrition benefits. We are able to keep our food affordable by working directly with farmers and producers, and by accepting, and doubling nutrition benefits through our Bonus Bucks program. In 2014, we're expanding our number of weekly Market stops to 10. We would love to continue to grow this program to meet the need and demand, but we need a second vehicle, and we need your help to make that happen. All contributions made to our Spring2Action campaign are tax deductible, and will support the Mobile Market program. Schedule your donation today, or make sure to give on April 9th. And don't forget to ask your friends to do the same.      

Looking for another way to support the Mobile Market? Order a copy of the Arcadia Mobile Market Seasonal Cookbook, and receive an incredible cookbook with delicious seasonal recipes, while supporting the Mobile Market program and helping us provide free cookbooks to our low-income customers.

We'd like to thank Bon Appetit Management Company for their support of the Mobile Market Seasonal Cookbook, and Inova and Wholesome Wave for their ongoing support of the Bonus Bucks program.
