The Mobile Market provides access to fresh and nutritious foods, thanks to a collaborative partnership between Carle Health and the newly formed Champaign-Urbana City Farms. Working with urban farming partners, including Sola Gratia Farm and Prosperity Gardens, we'll be distributing fresh, local and nutritious food on a regular basis.
MTD donated the bus and the Mobile Market is funded, in part, by the Community Solutions Incubator, a program of the Community Foundation of East Central Illinois, and a Mayors Innovation/Healthy Babies Bright Futures grant awarded to the City of Champaign Township – one of only seven cities in the country to receive funding.
A Collaborative community service made possible by Carle and CU City Farms.
Community Health Initiatives was developed to work closely with many community cross-sector partners and community members to build an infrastructure and culture of community health, ensuring children and their families, regardless of life circumstances, have an opportunity to be prosperous and live the healthiest life they can.VOLUNTEER VISIT INSTITUTE
