Meet the Mobile Market leaders: Why Mobile Market Matters to Me

Food as Medicine: Free Monthly Mobile Produce Market

Lynn Community Health Center has entered into a partnership with the Greater Boston Food Bank to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to our community through a free monthly produce distribution.

Volunteers Needed

What do we need?

  • Over 400 families come to each market!
  • We need about 25 – 30 volunteers each month to distribute the food!
  • Volunteers arrive 1 hour before the market opens to help set up for a three-hour commitment: 8:00-9:00 Setup, 9:00-10:00 Market is open. 10:00-11:00 Cleanup
  • This is a great opportunity for families to volunteer together, but children under 16 should come with an adult.
