Fourth Ward Councilwoman Renee Baskerville and the Township of Montclair are partnering with Hackensack Meridian Health Mountainside Medical Center, Partners for Health and City Green, to once again welcome the City Green Veggie Mobile – a mobile farm stand that will bring fresh produce and other healthful foods to Montclair’s South End district.
The Veggie Mobile will be at the Garden State Community Bank parking lot, 323 Orange Road from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on the following days:
July 15 and 19
August 2, 16, 30
Septmeber 13 and 27
October 11 and 25
The mobile farm stand will accept SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) cards, WIC (Women, Infants, and Children), SFMNP (Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program) vouchers and cash as payment. The Veggie Mobile will also help stretch families’ dollars:
Double SNAP dollars buy fresh produce and pay with your Families First card to get up to $10 City Green Bucks to spend the next visit to the Veggie Mobile.
SFMNP and WIC vouchers will be doubled, up to $10 per customer per day (for example, a $10 voucher is worth $20 at the mobile farm stand).
EBT/SNAP/Families First customers will receive a 50 percent discount on their purchase AND up to $10 in “City Green Bucks” to spend on their next visit to the Veggie Mobile.
In addition, HackensackUMC Mountainside will provide on-site health screenings and nutrition education with healthful recipes and demos.
The Veggie Mobile project is funded by a grant from the Partners for Health Foundation.
