Veggie Van

World Hunger Relief, Inc. launched a mobile market program in January of 2015 called the Veggie Van. The mission of the Veggie Van is to bring the good stuff to food deserts in the Waco community. A food desert is a geographic area where affordable and nutritious food is difficult to obtain, particularly for those without access to an automobile.

Veggie Van 2017

As of summer 2016 the Veggie Van runs three days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, at 11 different stops. The stops range from local social service organizations to schools and each week the van carries a variety of fresh, locally grown produce.
