City Harvest’s Mobile Markets provide rapid infusions of free fresh produce to five of the most food insecure communities in New York City. We worked with the largest market in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, which serves 300-500 customers on each market day. The Bed-Stuy mobile market is championed by passionate staff and volunteers who distribute more than 16,000 pounds of free food every 2 weeks. City Harvest first introduced its Mobile Market program 10 years ago, and has created an efficient and sustainable method for distributing large amounts of produce. However, as they work to improve the experience of their clients, City Harvest is interested in redesigning their distribution process.
