Help Launch Growing Places Indy’s First Mobile Market!
The Vegetabus will be a mobile market that will offer fresh, locally grown produce from Growing Places Indy’s farm to food desert areas all around downtown Indianapolis! This mobile farm stand strives to bring food closer to communities that lack access to affordable fresh produce.
The Vegetabus will travel to organizations, churches and schools, communities in the Near Eastside, Riverside, Fall Creek, and communities identified as a food desert.
To create the mobile market, we will convert a Type A bus into a mobile store that will sell locally grown produce from our farm. The bus renovations will include implementing refrigeration, shelving, electrical upgrades, painting, and more.
We need your help! Our goal is to raise $15,000, and If successful, the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) will provide a matching grant as part of its CreatINg Places program. Donate now at the link below!
