The Cambridge Food Bank’s Mobile Food Market now offers online commerce to shoppers with pick-ups at local community centres.


The Mobile Food Market, a beloved initiative by the Cambridge Food Bank committed to ensuring equitable access to fresh, afffordable produce, is proud to announce an expansion of its services. Building upon the success of its existing community locations and business site locations where communities and business site employees can pick up a variety of five fruits and vegetables, the Mobile Food Market is taking its mission to the next level by introducing a new commerce opportunity.


Starting April 2024, families in need of fresh produce will have the option to purchase weekly baskets online and conveniently pick them up at designated local community centres starting with the Fiddlesticks Community Centre every Thursday from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM. This innovative approach aims to provide yet another avenue for individuals and families to access affordable, nutritious food.


The Mobile Food Market is not just about providing fresh produce; it’s about connecting communities,” said Amy Slack, Operations Manager at the Cambridge Food Bank. “By offering weekly baskets for purchase online and pick-up at community centres, we’re making it easier for families to access healthy food options while also fostering economic opportunities.”


Understanding the financial constraints faced by many families, the Mobile Food Market is committed to keeping its produce affordable. Each basket costs the food bank between $10 to $15 to assemble. To ensure accessibility for all, customers are encouraged to pay a minimum of $10 per basket.

The Mobile Food Market remains open to everyone, regardless of income or background. With its new commerce opportunity and continued commitment to affordability and accessibility, the Mobile Food Market is poised to make an even greater impact on the health and well-being of our community.
